Iowa Corps of Engineers Lake Facts:

  • Rathbun Lake is the only Iowa Corps Reservoir that does not receive wastewater effluent discharge from Iowa's major metro areas.
  • Rathbun Lake is below expected sedimentation levels.  Redrock, Saylorville, and Coralville are ahead of expected levels.  Redrock has had two normal pool level increases since opening to accommodate siltation.
  • Rathbun Lake water quality allows use as both a source of drinking water by RRWA and as a primary fish hatchery by the IDNR.
  • ​The Rathbun Land and Water Alliance have had a demonstrable impact in efforts to mitigate pollutant discharge into our lake.  The effort continues with goals that will further improve our recreational water​
  • ​Variation of the normal pool to maximum pool for Iowa Corps of Engineers reservoirs - Rathbun 22 feet  Saylorville 48 feet  Coralville 38 feet  Redrock 38 feet
