Corps of Engineers sets open house on Sabula Lakes project

Army Corps of Engineers Sabula Lakes

SABULA, IOWA – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District, in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, invites the public to attend an open house to learn more about an ecosystem restoration project planned in the Sabula Lakes on the Mississippi River. 

The event will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 14, at the Izaak Walton League, 60190 U.S. Highway 52 in Sabula.

The Sabula Lakes, located in Pool 13 of the Mississippi River, have seen significant habitat degradation over time, resulting in diminished aquatic diversity and shallow depths. The project, which is part of the Corps of Engineers Navigation and Ecosystem Sustainability Program, aims to revitalize these lakes, enhancing water quality and fostering more diverse habitats that are critical to river-dependent species.

During the open house, a team of experts will provide an overview of potential features being considered for the project. After the presentation, representatives will be on hand to answer questions and gather feedback from the community.
