Lake McConaughy & Lake Ogallala

Ogallala, NE

The overall goal of this project was to improve some of the existing campsites and roads within the Lake McConaughy and Lake Ogallala State Recreation Areas. E&A was asked to conduct the delineation two weeks before the end of the field season, and was completed in one week’s time. The project is located 330 miles from E&A’s Omaha office.


As part of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, a wetland delineation is required for developments/projects to determine if wetlands or Waters of the United States will be impacted by the proposed project. E&A conducted a wetland delineation of 34 areas designated for improvements along approximately nine miles of shoreline. Twenty-five wetlands areas totaling 48.5 acres were identified within or near the improvement areas, along with 4,278 feet of drainages.
