How do I update my Corps Lakes Data?
Does your Corps Lakes visitor page have bad data or links that don't work? You can update your data two ways: within OMBIL and the data management system. The facilities matrix is populated from OMBIL data, which is received every quarter. Most of the other lake information is collected outside of OMBIL and updated as needed.
To view your actual OMBIL data, go to your Lake page and select the "For Employees ONLY" link on the top right of the page. The top of the page will show the date that the OMBIL data were delivered to us. The facilities matrix must be corrected inside OMBIL. Changes made to OMBIL after this date will not appear in the matrix until the next OMBIL download.
Data that is not part of OMBIL can be updated via the Corps Lakes Management System. We recommend that the individual responsible for OMBIL input be the person at the project responsible for the review and updating of this data to support the visitor pages. Reviews by other project staff and managers should be coordinated through this POC. Note that you may enter links to websites from your licensed concessionaires. You may also submit partnership items for your Lake site.
