MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, released the updated Walter F. George and George W. Andrews Project Master Plan.

This revised master plan was a generational effort to provide planning for Walter F. George and George W. Andrews for the next 30 years[RWAC(1] . The Master Plan focused on recreational use and natural resources management. .

Highlights of the Master Plan Process include:

A master plan does not appropriate money to any improvements or developments, but effectively portrays where these projects could be authorized if funding or a strategic partnership were to become available for implementation. Master Plans do not change the technical operations of a lake as related to its primary missions of flood-risk management and hydropower. This revision is part of a larger, USACE-wide effort to bring master plans up to date across the country.


With an area of operation across Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and northern Florida, and a vast military region that includes operations across Central and South America, the Mobile District’s award- winning teams of engineering, construction, regulatory and emergency management professionals are nationally recognized for their leadership in delivery of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ civil works and military programs missions to the Nation.
