Corps of Engineers to host public scoping meetings on recreation sites

Published Nov. 27, 2018

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is hosting public scoping meetings on two of its reservoirs in North Dakota.

The meetings will help Corps officials gather information to
guide the district’s operations for Lake Ashtabula, near Valley City, North Dakota, and Homme Reservoir, near Grafton, North Dakota. The master 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.

The meetings are scheduled for:

Lake Ashtabula Public Scoping Meeting               Homme Reservoir Public Scoping Meeting
Dec. 5, 7 - 9 p.m.                                                        Dec. 6, 7 - 9 p.m.

Valley City Fire Department                                        Walsh County Courthouse

241 3rd Ave NE                                                          600 Cooper Ave

Valley City                                                                   Grafton

Corps staff will be available during both meetings to discuss the reservoirs and future plans. The meetings are informal, but there will be a short slide show presentation at 7 p.m. to explain the projects and next steps in the planning process.

The current master plans are available on the St. Paul District website at:
