The Army Corps of Engineers is advising Lake Cunningham and the park around it should be shut down. 

The move would allow experts to get rid of two invasive species, the zebra mussel and carp. Our partners at the Omaha World-Herald say closing the lake and park for six months is a preferred option. The park surrounding the lake would be closed for safety reasons. 

The Army Corps is taking public comment through Oct. 17. City and state officials have the final say on the decision.
