Officials Continue Talk of Constructing Reservoir

Officials Continue Talk of Constructing Reservoir

Officials will continue talks about whether to construct a new reservoir, Lake Ringgold, to supplement water from Lake Arrowhead, Lake Kemp, and Lake Kickapoo.
    Wichita Falls city councilors give their approval today to continue looking into building a new reservoir to supply future generations with water.
    Studies predict this region will have a deficit water supply by the year 2060.
    The feasibility study for the new reservoir, Lake Ringgold in Clay County, would cost up to $357-thousand, but would be paid for by the Tarrant Regional Water Authority, which may help develop and use water from the reservoir.
    The City of Wichita Falls bought the 5,000 acres in the 1980s, but has never sought the funding to build the reservoir.
    The rights and regulations as a designated site for a reservoir expire in 2015, unless the process of development of a reservoir are underway.
