Abstract:

The Carl L. Estes Lake project fulfills flood control, water supply, fish and wildlife, as well as recreational needs for northeast Texas. Project will remove from private ownership 68,700 acres of land. There will be permanent loss of species due to inundation. At least 91 archeological sites could be adversely affected. There are no significant historical sites. There will be social, cultural, and economic impacts from loss of wildlife habitat, loss of flora and fauna, relocation of families, loss of lands, and change of social activities. Project requires acquisition and changes in land use. Relocating families, cemeteries, roads and utility lines will have social and psychological impacts upon area residents, but should not cause hardships. The combination of flood control, water supply, fish and wildlife, and recreation project will lie within parts of Rains, Smith, Wood, and Van Zandt Counties, Texas. Author
