Ripples in the waterLocally the US Army Corp of Engineers are assigned the task of regulating the water level of our lakes that are designed for flood prevention. These lakes are Clear Fork, Charles Mill, and Pleasant Hill. The purpose of regulating water level is to first protect the dams from damage, and secondly used as stop gaps to minimize lower level drainage areas from additional water discharge from upper watersheds. The US Army Corp of Engineers work alongside US EPA in protecting the water quality of the water by using the Clean Water Act.
