 The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, will begin a small low-level release at Zorinsky Lake in Omaha on Friday to improve the water quality of the lake. This release will help reduce algae growth by removing a portion of the nutrients that are released from lake sediment under summer conditions.  The release will continue  through September. If the lake drops one foot below the normal pool, the release will be reduced to minimize recreational impacts. The release will be restored when the lake rises above the normal pool. The lake level is not projected to differ from typical levels.


Release no. 20-045
