  1. Wow, so the residents on the lake and any boaters desiring to take advantage of this natural beauty will lose all privileges a full one and a half feet of water depth before any irrigation will be curtailed. Isn’t that interesting.

  2. When will the red River pumping station be utilized? Why was all that money spent if we can use our backyard?
