    Your Voice is Needed

    Below you will find the letters we talked about on Don Berry's Fishin' Radio Show in regards to the Water Resources Development act of 2016 for Table Rock Lake. Please copy and past the letter to Senator Blunt and Represenative Long, send to thier offices to help stop the Water Resources Development Act of 2016 and protect our fishing resource!!

    Letter to Senator Blunt

    Dear Senator Roy Blunt:

    As a concerned citizen, I am submitting this request for you to immediately withdraw your amendment(Senate amendment 2648) to the Water Resources Development Act of 2016.  This amendment would lift the moratorium on new dock permits and allow a window of opportunity for a flood of applications to placeadditional community docks on Table Rock Lake.  This amendment would also completely circumvent and undermine the ongoing Table Rock Lake SMP revision process.  You are contending that this amendment is your response to public input generated by the “Save Table Rock Lake” website.  That was a skewed attempt by developers, realtors, and dock buildersto sway your influence and was not an accurate reflection of the overall interests or concerns of the general public.   
     

    I am disappointed that you have never attempted to solicit the opinion of the general public during this ongoing revision process.  That would have been the proper way to accurately gauge the opinions and concerns of all of your constituents, not just the concerns of a few developers, realtors, and dock builders.I am a fisherman and “day user” of Table Rock Lake and I do not favor any future additional community docks (12 stall minimum,  20 stall maximum) on Table Rock Lake. I am also concerned that adequate and proportionate representation of fishermen and day users was not implemented in the composition of the focus groups that the Corps of Engineers tasked with reviewing and making recommendations during this ongoing SMP revision process. 
     

    Table Rock Lake is the only Corps of Engineers project in the United States that has a policy of approving the huge community docks that we see throughout the lake.  Theplacement of these community docks on Table Rock Lake hasdetracted from the beauty of the lake, has adversely affected the quality of the boating and fishing experience, and has led to a much higher boat density on Table Rock Lake.  They also interfere with navigation, cover up large areas of the useable surface area of the lake, and create potentially dangerous funneling of boat traffic.   I want to see a limit and more strict requirements for any future private boat docks on Table Rock Lake.  This is the only way to try to preserve what is left of the pristine nature of Table Rock Lake and prevent it from becoming similar to Lake of the Ozarks.Available zoning exists on Table Rock Lake to potentially double the number of community docks that are presently placed on the lake, and I don’t think that is an acceptable fate for this lake!
