Intended to meet the water needs of north Texas for generations to come, Bois d'Arc Lake is the first major reservoir under construction in the state in almost 30 years. Construction began in April 2018, and is moving forward at a steady pace.
The North Texas Municipal Water District broke ground on the new Lower Bois d'Arc Creek Reservoir on May 25 in Fannin County. This is the first reservoir to be built in Texas in 30 years and is expected to be complete in 2022.
After 15 years of preparation, the Lower Bois d'Arc Creek Reservoir is finally on the verge of becoming a reality.
The project received its final permit on Friday. "This is really a big, big deal for Fannin County," said County Judge Spanky Carter. "It's the first lake in the State of Texas to be constructed in 30 years, so this doesn't happen just every day."
