The Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Eufaula Lake Shoreline Management Plan Revision and Master Plan Supplement describes the land and resource categories potentially affected by federal management actions at the lake. The purpose of the proposed update to the Shoreline Management Plan and the Master Plan supplement is to provide for lake management that is predictable and equitable. The proposed update needs to be responsive to recreation demand and the public interest and that provides for stewardship of natural and cultural resources. This Draft Environmental Impact Statement analyzes alternatives that revise the Shoreline Management Plan and the Master Plan supplement and it reviews specific requests for zoning and for a lease of government land (Carlton Landing).
