Turning an Eroded River Channel into a Reliable Water Supply

Lake Ralph Hall will be one of Texas’ newest lakes and one of the state’s biggest water projects in the last 30 years.

Named after the longtime US Congressman Ralph Hall from Rockwall, the reservoir will be located on the North Sulphur River in Southeast Fannin County. The project is being built by Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) and will provide crucial water for an area whose population is projected to increase nearly five-fold in the next 50 years. Construction of the lake began June of 2021, with water being delivered by 2026.
