The requester proposes the construction of a water intake facility and associated features on lands and waters of the Lake Texoma (Denison) Project, Grayson County, Texas. The City of Denison, through multiple real estate instruments, proposes to construct a new municipal water supply intake facility, pump station, and pipeline on lands owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The proposed alternative would include a constructed channel approximately 150- to 200-feet in length, 40- to 50-feet in width, and to a maximum depth of 37-feet. Water would be conveyed at the intake and pump station, via a 42-inch raw water pipeline, from Lake Texoma to a discharge point in Randell Lake, Grayson County, Texas. Construction and operations and maintenance activities would permanently impact 4.6-acres (3-acres for the channel and pump station; 1.6 acres for the pipeline and road) of land and result in the placement of 0.25 acres of fill or dredged material into Lake Texoma. Approximately 2.2-surface acres of water would be reclassified as restricted to comply with 200-foot buffer requirements for municipal water intake structures by the State of Texas.
