"Following its official groundbreaking this week, work is set to begin on Ralph Hall Lake, the newest man-made reservoir that is expected to provide up to 54 million gallons of water per day for Denton and Collin counties by 2026.
Named after late U.S. Congressman Ralph M. Hall, the $490 million reservoir project will store 180,000 acre-feet of water. Ralph Hall Lake is needed since North Texas’ population is expected to increase nearly fivefold in the next 50 years."
