Lake Fork Reservoir – Soil Cement Repairs

April 1, 2022

Earlier this year the water level at Lake Fork Reservoir was lowered to an elevation of approximately 397‐ft to make repairs and further assess soil cement along the upstream side of the Lake Fork Dam. Further inspections were conducted by divers and revealed submerged areas below elevation 397 that were also in need of repair. A two phased approach was conducted to repair the above water and below water repairs.

All above water repair work has been completed and as of this press release the SRA will no longer hold the reservoir at elevation 397. The rate of rise of the lake will depend on rainfall and inflow from upstream tributaries. Underwater repair work will continue for the foreseeable future but can be conducted as the reservoir is allowed to fill.
