Status and Activities

Execution of the original implemenation plan was 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) worked with stakeholders to evaluate the implementation and revise it as appropriate. In 2014, the stakeholders prepared a revision to the original implementation plan to continue their efforts in improving local water quality..
