Feasibility Study of Reelfoot Lake Improved Wildlife Habitat

Stanley Consultants conducted a feasibility study to examine the potential benefits and cost of various features designed to restore and protect the environment in the Reelfoot Lake area.

Reelfoot Lake, formed by the earthquakes of 1811-1812, covers approximately 15,500 acres at a pool elevation of 282.2 and is the largest natural freshwater lake in Tennessee and one of the largest in the country.  The lake offers nesting and feeding habitat for the Bald Eagle, and provides one of the most highly productive fisheries in the area.

The selected features included construction of an alternative spillway, bridge, inlet and outlet channels, circulation channels within Reelfoot Lake, a sediment basin on Reelfoot Creek, restoration of Shelby Lake and construction of waterfowl management units, and improvements at Lake Isom National Wildlife Refuge.

Stanley Consultants provided mechanical, electrical and structural engineering to support the design and construction phase services for the project improvements.  Flood control and drainage improvements in the basin have dramatically impacted the quality of fish and wildlife habitat.
