Abstract

The proposed Wallisville Lake, Plan 2A, is a shallow reservoir of some 5,600 acres to be confined to the Trinity Delta area east of the Trinity River. The yield from this reservoir is projected to be 140 million gallons per day (MGD) of surface water. Control structures associated with the reservoir include a spillway surface water. Control structures associated with the reservoir include a spillway at the southern extremity of the project on the Trinity River and three control gates at the southern extremity of the project of the Trinity River and three control gates in the western marsh; on the Cutoff, Lost River and Old River. The Cutoff structure controls flow from the Lake into the western marsh, the Lost River structure controls flow from the Cutoff into the Lost River, and the Old River structure controls flow from the Cutoff into the Old River. These three control gates will regulate low flows through the marsh and act as saltwater barriers.
