The Corps of Engineers has published it's 5 year management plan for Lake Barkley. If you have ever wondered where the COE rules come from or why they are in place, the management plan is a good place to start gathering information. CLICK HERE to see the 40+ page plan.
If you are considering purchasing property that adjoins the Corps administered land around the lake, you should be aware of the management plan for Lake Barkley. BTW, the management plan is republished every 5 years. Generally, speaking that is the only time the Corps will consider changes to the plan. If you want to petition for a section of waterfront to be designated dockable, your request must be submitted to the Corps before the next management plan change in 2020.
