Corps waives fees for showers at Big Sandy


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is waving its day-use shower fees for Big Sandy Lake Recreation Area, near McGregor effective immediately.

Residents around the reservoir that lost power and/or septic service due to the recent flood can use the Corps’ shower facilities free of charge through the end of September. The facilities will be closed for the season after September.
