DENISON, TX -- The city of Denison wants the federal government to look at Lake Texoma. The city council is asking U.S. Senators and Congressmen from Texas to approve and fund an environmental impact study at the lake.

City attorney Tom Akins says there has not been a study like this since 1973.

The army corps of engineers would conduct the study, which could mean more boathouses and marinas on both sides of the lake.

No word on when that could happen.

    Lake Texoma can handle more private Boathouses its not so much marinas.People can be responsible for the upkeep of their own property. Makes more work for the CORP. because they'll have to physically check and make sure private boathouse comply with their rules and regulations. Marinas now do that for them, with an annual inspection.Cleaning up our current marinas is a never ending job. The fact is Lake Texoma is flood control lake and that can't be changed.The only thing that changes around here is the water level and the weather. We could all benifit from having more structures on this Lake.

    Lake Texoma doesn't need more Marinas, they just need to clean up the ones they have. An environmental impact study - you've got to be joking? The city of Denison should worry about other things. I still think they need a tourist draw like "The worlds largest Minnow." I'm tellin' ya folks, this would be bigger than Six Flags! Just look at what the cast iron Peanut did for Durant! LOL.
