NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 10,
2016) – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District has updated the Old Hickory Lake Master Plan. The 2016 Master
Plan, associated environmental assessment, and signed finding of no
significant impact are posted on the Old Hickory Lake
website at http://www.lrn.usace.army.mil/Locations/Lakes/OldHickoryLake.aspx.
Lake’s Biologist Thomas Mason said, “The Master Plan does not focus on boat
dock and land use permits like the Shoreline Management Plan. The Master Plan
focuses on comprehensive management and development of all project
recreational, natural and cultural resources.
If you are interested in private activities like boat docks and
vegetation modifications, those activities will be addressed in the Shoreline
Management Plan to be updated in 2019."
any questions pertaining to the 2016 Master Plan, please call the Old Hickory
Lake Resource Manager’s Office at (615) 822-4846 or (615) 847-2395. The
office’s mailing address and physical location is 5 Power Plant Road,
