REMARKS - Some records listed in the "Period of Record" for surface water and water quality may not be available electronically. The lake is formed by a rolled earthfill dam 5,800 ft long. Deliberate impoundment began Dec. 5, 1966, and the dam was completed in Aug. 1967. The dam is the property of Greenbelt Municipal and Industrial Water Authority and was built to impound water for municipal and industrial uses by the cities of Childress, Clarendon, Crowell, Hedley, and Quanah. The spillway is an uncontrolled open cut through natural ground, 1,450 ft wide and located at the left end of dam, designed to discharge 184,000 ft³/s at an elevation of 2,684.0 ft. A morning-glory-type drop inlet with a 26-ft 8.5-inch-diameter opening at crest discharges into a 7- by 7-ft concrete conduit. The outlet works consists of a 36-in pipe that is controlled by two 20-in valves that control the discharge into a stilling basin and to a water treatment plant. Data regarding the dam are given in the following table.
                                              Elevation (feet)
