[ARCHIVED] NTMWD continues Construction of Bois d’Arc Lake

Lake Bois d Arc Map Web

Did you know that the North Texas Municipal Water District is currently constructing the first major reservoir to be built in Texas in nearly 30 years? After 15 years of planning and permitting, construction began in May 2018 on Bois d’Arc Lake located northeast of Bonham in Fannin County. The lake will cover almost 26 square miles and yield almost 108 million gallons of water per day. The reservoir’s two-mile-long and 90-foot-tall dam will create a lake capable of storing 120 billion gallons of water. The additional storage will help ensure crucial water supplies for the future of our growing region. Water delivery is scheduled to begin in 2022.
