From what I'd seen lately I thought the Lower Bois D'arc Reservoir project would never happen, but this email I got at work sounds promising.-
EPA Works with Partners to Bring New Drinking Water Source to North Texas



DALLAS – (Jan. 26, 2018) With engagement and partnership from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a project to provide a drinking water source for North Texas is closer to getting underway. The Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir project, as proposed by the North Texas Municipal Water District, will create water supply reservoir to provide drinking water to cities north and east of Dallas, Texas.



“EPA worked extensively with partner agencies to make the vision for the Lower Bois d’Arc Creek reservoir a reality,” said Regional Administrator Anne Idsal. “This project is ready to move forward to provide drinking water for a growing North Texas population while remaining protective of the environment.”



As a cooperating agency, EPA worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other stakeholders over several years to address issues with the proposed project, which will impact more than 6,000 acres of wetlands and more than 120 miles of streams. Through this engagement, the North Texas Municipal Water District increased mitigation measures to offset environmental impacts of the project. This mitigation plan outlines efforts to restore and enhance wetlands and streams at sites close to the project area. Total mitigation efforts will provide compensation with 9,131 wetlands acres and 74.3 miles of streams.



The North Texas Municipal Water District serves one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the country. The Lower Bois d’Arc Creek reservoir will provide drinking water supply infrastructure for this growing population by 2022. When finished, the reservoir will yield an estimated 175,000 acre feet of drinking water per year for North Texas consumers.

A new lake in four years. The original size I heard was about 17,000 surface acres. I wonder if that remains the same? Looking forward to having new water to fish in my lifetime!

Did a little checking on the lake levels site. Joe Pool seems to to be the closest to acre feet with about 171,000.

land grabbers have already secured most, if not all, of the projected waterfront property around it. Mom looked hard all over it for investment property at the water's edge with no luck. it's gonna happen. it makes Bonham look small in the planned mapping of it that I saw.

Keep Lake Bonham separate or no, treat like Lewisville?
