Abstract : The plan consists of a multiple-purpose lake for flood control, fish, and wildlife production, and recreation. The dam site would be located on the Kickapoo River about 1 mile north of La Farge and would be an earth-fill structure. About 1,780 acres of water-surface area and about 8,000 acres of land would be converted to public ownership, and about 1,400 acres of project land would be used for recreational development. Creation of the conservation recreation pool would inundate about 1,780 acres, and nearby areas would be subject to the effects of periodic indundation.
