Corps of Engineers to host Eau Galle Recreation Area public scoping meeting

Published April 12, 2018

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is hosting a public scoping meeting on the Eau Galle Project Master Plan update in Spring Valley, Wisconsin, April 26.

Eau Galle Recreation Area is a 150-acre impoundment surrounded by two day-use areas, a beach, two boat launches, a campground and several miles of hiking and equestrian trails. It is located just north of Spring Valley, or 50 miles east of St. Paul.

The meeting will be held at the Spring Valley Emergency Services Building in Spring Valley, S407 Newman Avenue, from 6-8 p.m.

Corps staff will be there discussing the Eau Galle Project Master Plan. The meeting is informal and there will be a short slide show presentation at 6:30 p.m., to explain the project and next steps in the planning process.

The Eau Galle Project Master Plan, last updated in 1990, is a strategic land use document that will guide the St. Paul District, in the years to come. It is being updated to comply with current Corps of Engineers policies and regulations. The plan, while conceptual in nature, will serve as the vision for both environmental stewardship and recreation as the Corps continues to serve the public in the 21st Century.
