Lake Fork and Lake Tawakoni - Drought Advisory

Advisory #1

Persons having interests in Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork Reservoir are hereby advised that on Monday, October 21, 2013, the General Manager of the Sabine River Authority of Texas (SRA) initiated Stage 1 of the SRA Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan for Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork Reservoir. Mild Water Shortage Conditions (Stage 1) exist in the service areas of Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork when SRA's portion of the combined storage of Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork falls to and remains at or below 65% for fourteen consecutive days.

During a mild water shortage condition, SRA encourages voluntary water use reductions. Each customer entity in turn will follow its individual measures for mild water storage conditions.
