Before that can happen, those who would be directly affected by the proposed Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir will have the chance to present their case to the Texas Office of Administrative Hearings.

Texas Commission on Environmental Quality commissioners met on Sept. 24 in Austin and referred the cases of those parties who had proved to TCEQ that the new lake would impact them or their land to the Texas Office of Administrative Hearings.

The intersection is about two miles north of Lake Bonham.
