Natural Resource Management

US Army Corps of Engineers Natural Resource Specialists conducting a hydrilla survey on Jordan Lake.

As stewards of the public land and water at our Lake projects the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must carefully manage the natural resources at Jordan Lake. 

• preserving flood storage capacity

• maintaining a steadily improving natural resource base

• protecting water quality

• producing hydropower

• supplying drinking water

• providing sustainable, high quality, diverse, natural resource based outdoor recreation opportunities to the public

Sustaining and improving these public assets ensures that the Corps will be able to serve the public by fulfilling our Congressional mandates today and in years to come.
