New Reservoir Upgrades to Begin this Summer


Marceline, MO -  Residents and visitors will see major improvements to the facilities at the City Lake (New Reservoir) this year following a grant awarded through the Community Assistance Program (CAP) grant by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). 

Application for this project took several years and involved many hours of engineering through Allstate Consultants and City Staff planning and research, application for a Clean Water Section 404 permit, and receipt of clearance from the State Historic Preservation Office.  The City was notified in January of the grant award.

The New Reservoir, located south of Marceline and west of HWY 5 on Marceline Lake Avenue, will see many improvements to include.

  • Covered Fishing Dock

  • Courtesy Dock

  • Fish Cleaning Station

  • New Boat Ramp

  • New Restroom Facility

  • Larger Parking Lot

  • Area Lighting

These improvements will be compliant with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.

The estimated project cost is approximately $315,000, which covers engineering, labor and material.  This is a 75 / 25 grant in which 75% of the project is reimbursable by MDC and 25% is the City’s share, of which a majority will be the labor costs. 

The project work will be done by the Marceline Street Department and is expected to be completed in early Fall of 2021.
