Joe Pool Lake

As local sponsor for Joe Pool Lake, TRA’s obligation requires repayment for all costs attributable to water supply storage. TRA has committed 100 percent of this water supply to Cedar Hill, Duncanville, Grand Prairie and the Midlothian Water District.  In accordance with the terms of a contract between the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and TRA, interest on the uncommitted portion of the water supply debt began accruing in 1996.  In recent years, the Midlothian Water District and Duncanville have paid their federal water supply debt in full.  The other parties that have contracted for portions of the water supply have taken the option to defer payment of interest on the uncommitted portion.
