Progress In 2022,
And Looking Ahead To 2023

The Leon Hurse Dam is taking shape thanks to hard work during 2022.

This past year has been one of tremendous progress for Lake Ralph Hall, with most of the road and bridge work already completed. In 2023, Upper Trinity will kick off several additional parts of the project, including a pipeline to carry water from the lake to where it can be treated and distributed to homes and businesses across North Texas. Contractors are pouring the last piece of decking for Merrill Creek Bridge shortly in the New Year.

Much progress was made for the construction of Lake Ralph Hall in Fannin County during 2022.

Environmental Improvements
To Break Ground This Year

The remnant of the former North Sulphur River will be restored
as part of mitigation plans for Lake Ralph Hall.

Last spring Upper Trinity’s Board of Directors approved a contract with Texas Mitigation Solutions (TMS) to restore areas near the future Lake Ralph Hall—construction required to offset the environmental impacts of the new reservoir. Since that time, TMS has been working to finish designs so they can begin on stream restoration this spring.
The goal of this mitigation project is to restore a key portion of the former North Sulphur River to its original, winding path surrounded by healthy, forested floodplains. Crews will set up work trailers and identify the best areas to stage equipment and supplies. Then, site preparation will begin—removing invasive/nuisance plants and clearing and collecting trees to improve current stream designs. Stream construction should be underway by this summer.
