Bois d’Arc Lake is Texas’ first new major reservoir in nearly 30 years. The 16,641-acre lake will be located northeast of the city of Bonham in Fannin County.
“The lake’s name honors local history and recognizes the Bois d’Arc tree as a distinctive symbol with special significance for the region,” said boisdarclake.org
Bois d’Arc Lake will meet the water needs and demands for our growing region of 1.7 million people until 2040.
Low-interest funding approved by the state will pay for nearly all of the project and save the District and ratepayers millions in financing costs.
The Fannin County Sheriff’s Office is set to receive a $2.5 million grant over 10-years to fund a marine/patrol unit, including training and equipment, for Bois d’Arc Lake.
