What is Lake Ralph Hall?
Lake Ralph Hall will be the newest lake and one of the state's biggest projects to be built in nearly 30 years. The new lake will be located on the North Sulphur River near Ladonia in Fannin County. It will provide a safe, reliable water supply for the communities that Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) serves in North Texas.
Construction on the lake began in June of 2021, with water delivery scheduled by 2026. Once complete, it will provide up to 54 million gallons per day — 35 million gallons daily (MGD) of raw and 19 MGD of reuse water.
UTRWD holds a water rights permit issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in December 2013. In January 2020, UTRWD received a Section 404 (Clean Water Act) permit from the U.S. Army Corps. of Engineers.
