NRCS Representative, Harold Decker, said there were a couple of requirements to sign off on, but completion of those requirements was expected in the very near future.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources earlier this month provided a $250,000 grant for the project. The DNR grant also is to be used for engineering and other applicable studies for the lake.

Caldwell County Presiding Commissioner, C.R. Bud Motsinger, said the funds are very helpful , and come at a very opportune time with the remaining studies required before final approval is given by the Corps of Engineers.

Commissioner Donnie Cox thanked NRCS, Senators Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill, and Congressmen Sam Graves for their support and efforts for the lake.

More than 5 3/4 million dollars of federal and state funds have been allocated thus far for the project. In addition, Caldwell County voters approved a ½ cent sales tax in 2003 to pay a portion of the costs.

Coordinator Terry Rummery of Chillicothe says the project, which began about 12 years ago, now is estimated to cost around 10 million dollars or slightly more. He said that's up from the original estimate around 6 million.

The lake itself, of about 400 acres, is to be used primarily for drinking water, but also provide flood control and recreation. The lake area is around 600 to 650 acres.

Rummery said it's hoped construction can begin in the year 2015, but that will depend on the ability to meet government requirements.

Caldwell County Commissioner, Gerald McBrayer, said things are really progressing, but alot remains before final approval. He mentioned the funds allocated this month will help underwrite the process.
