Status and Activities

Execution of the I-Plan is being led by the Northeast Texas Municipal Water District Exit the TCEQ in partnership with stakeholders in the region. Assessment in 2010 indicated that conditions have improved; dissolved oxygen concentrations remain below the criteria for support of aquatic life in the upper 3,700 acres of the lake. Find the latest reported assessment of the lake in the Cypress Creek Basin Highlights Report Exit the TCEQ on the Water District’s website.

The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) is working with stakeholders to evaluate the I-Plan and revise it as appropriate. TWRI began work on the review in September 2012, and is also coordinating stakeholder involvement in the review.
