Bois d’Arc Lake – September 2019 Update

In this month’s edition of the Bois d’Arc Lake newsletter, we highlight the statewide Texas Native Seeds (TNS) program which recently selected Bois d’Arc Lake’s mitigation site to research the best native grass and forb seeds to use when planting in the North Texas area.

More progress includes:

  • Building the lake dam: Two million cubic yards of earth have been moved, and this month the dam reached its full, 500-foot width.
  • Concrete pours for the lake spillway to release overflow water and the intake tower to move water out for treatment.
  • Two more pours of concrete deck to make the road base for a future FM907 bridge. Continuing placement of substructure/beams.
  • Most piping completed at the lake’s raw water pump station.
