COMMERCE, Texas (KETR) - They’re building a lake in Fannin County. It already carries the name of a legendary Northeast Texas congressman, the late Ralph Hall.
At this moment, though, it is a lake in name only. It will fill eventually with rainwater that the Upper Trinity Regional Water District hopes will occur by 2025. However, as I took a tour of the site recently with Jason Pierce, government affairs and communications manager with the UTRWD, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of awe.
