Kansas Floats Letter to Corps About Reservoirs

KSAL StaffOctober 30, 2013

Kansas officials are seeking to take control of recreational areas at lakes managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in effort to reduce overlap of services and expenses.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Gov. Sam Brownback has sent a letter to the Pentagon seeking to end federal management of certain recreational areas at reservoirs where both the state and Corps of Engineers operate.

The Corps of Engineers operates 17 reservoirs in Kansas, including Tuttle Creek, Clinton and Perry. It is unclear how many of the lakes the state would take over.

Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Secretary Robin Jennison said it made little sense to have state and federal governments each spending money for recreational activities, such as fishing, camping and boating.
