Lake Ralph Hall will provide our region with a number of important benefits
As the population of Denton and Collin counties grows, so does its demand for water. While Upper Trinity Regional Water District's (UTRWD) members and customers continue to reduce water use per person, its 29 communities are growing at a rate that their needs cannot be met by conservation and reuse alone. For this reason, Lake Ralph Hall is key to our region’s continued vitality. It will provide water for generations, boost the local economy and continue to support the growing economies of the communities we serve.
Ladonia Fossil Park
The Ladonia Fossil Park is one of Ladonia’s most popular and visited sites. Fossil hunters flock to this portion of the river to discover a variety of fossils and artifacts. Upper Trinity recently made improvements to the current fossil park and is working with the City of Ladonia to select another ideal spot for the park after the new reservoir is built.
After the lake is complete, fishing, boating and nature viewing--among other recreational options--will provide additional commercial and industrial opportunities to draw locals and visitors alike.
Lake Ralph Hall and its planned environmental improvements will actually help reduce the impact of the continued erosion and restore portions of the original river channel to its beautiful and natural, meandering path.
