Resource Management Plan
Goals and Objectives Summary for the East Park Reservoir RMP
The Need for a Resource Management Plan
Public use of Reclamation reservoirs has increased significantly in recent years, placing increased demands on the limited lands and facilities surrounding the reservoirs in the Mid-Pacific Region, including California, Nevada, and Oregon. The goals for East Park Reservoir are as follows:
- Manage, protect, and enhance fish and wildlife habitat and natural, cultural, and recreational resources;
- Preserve the aesthetic quality and natural environment;
- Promote the safe and healthful use of the reservoir lands and waters; and
- Expanding the services and season of the reservoir's use.
East Park Reservoir's facilities have been underdeveloped and overused. Reclamation's goal is to implement optimum rather than maximum recreational development, maintaining resource protection while providing visitors with a low-density recreational experience and enhancing benefits to the local economy.
The RMP will supercede the East Park General Recreation Development Plan, June 1969, and will incorporate the 1983 Draft East Park Reservoir Area Management Plan.
