Abstract : Draft environmental statement for Sterling C. Robertson Dam and Limestone Lake, Navasota River, Texas (Leon, Limestone and Robertson counties); this project will supply water for municipal, industrial, and agricultural use by those who contract with the Brazos River Authority in central and north-central Texas. Additional aquatic habitat is expected to be beneficial to a wide variety of aquatic species. Some terrestrial habitat will be converted to aquatic habitat. Secondary development adjacent to this area will deplete terrestrial habitat. Loss of taxable land will temporarily affect the local area, but land values will increase after the project is completed. The lake would have no flood-control storage so flood control waters would be passed on downstream. (Author)
