The Master Plan guides how the Corps manages Ice Harbor project lands surrounding Lake Sacajawea behind Ice Harbor Dam. Master Plans are about the land – they do not address dam operations (e.g., spill, fish passage, or dam breaching), flood risk management (e.g., levees), or navigation.
We are also completing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to accompany the revised Master Plan as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). We ask for comments from the public and from stakeholders during scoping; the input influences the decisions we make for these public lands.
The Corps will accept comments from May 1 through June 15, 2020. See below for information on what the Master Plan covers, the different areas in the Ice Harbor Project, and how you can comment.
