Harry S. Truman Dam and Reservior

The Harry S. Truman Dam and Reservior, also knows as Truman Lake, is located in state of Missouri.

It is a man-made lake and the dam that created and manages the lake's water level. It is located between Clinton and Warsaw, on the Osage River and extends south to Osceola.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built and manages the lake and dam. Its primary mission is flood control. Some other missions are power generation, recreation, and wildlife management.

Originally named Kaysinger Bluff Dam and Reservoir in 1954, when construction was authorized, construction began in August of 1964. It was renamed the Harry S.


Truman Dam and Reservoir in honor of the former president from Missouri by Congress in 1970. Construction was completed in 1979.

Completing the Truman Project took many years of planning, land acquisition, constructing new bridges and demolishing old ones. Several roads, towns, and cemeteries had to be relocated. The first construction project completed on the project was relocating Missouri State Highway 13 so it would be above maximum pool level. The creation of the lake forced the closure of the Frisco Railroad's "Highline" Rising water levels severed the tracks near Osceola and Deepwater and railroad officials declined to spend millions to reroute the lightly-used tracks. The Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, however, did relocate it's mainline between LaDue and Clinton; the project included five miles of new track and a causeway/bridge combination over the lake.
