Lake Wichita Study Committee Gets Money to Move Forward

Combined lake levels at Lake Kickapoo and Arrowhead may be down to 27.5 % but that hasn't stopped some Wichita Falls citizens from making plans for when the rain returns.
Combined lake levels at Lake Kickapoo and Arrowhead may be down to 27.5 % but that hasn't stopped some Wichita Falls citizens from making plans for when the rain returns.

Wichita Falls city councilors showed their support for the Lake Wichita study committees plan Tuesday morning by voting to give them 55 hundred dollars.

The money will get them professional help to refine their pitch in order to get a permit from the corp of engineers.

They are hoping to get a two phase plan approved, starting with dredging the lake and ending with hopes of adding an inflatable water park, restaurant and retail facilities.

Combined phases could cost around 43 million dollars, and the vast majority of that would be spent on dredging.

The committee is trying to raise most of the funds through private donations.
