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 1,250 ft long, including a 500-ft uncontrolled spillway. Deliberate impoundment began in Nov. 1966. The uncontrolled spillway is an excavated channel cut through natural ground and located at the right end of the dam. The low-flow outlet consists of an 18-inch concrete pressure pipe through the dam with valve on the upstream side. Water is used for municipal and industrial purposes in the area. There are no known diversions. The dam is owned by the Houston County WC&ID No. 1. In 2000, levels were used to determine elevations from NGVD of 1929. The reference elevation was found to differ from the TWDB published value by -0.60 ft. Data regarding the dam use the datum from TWDB Report 126 and are given in the following table:
