Dredging Approved for Lake Throckmorton

Officials in Throckmorton have approved dredging for Lake Throckmorton.

Back in 2011, a pipeline was put into the lake to help with the drought. In 2013 the city went back to using that pipeline due to the continuing drought.

We spoke with Mayor Will Carroll, who told our crews how this project was made possible,

"The main reason why we decided to do it now is because we did have a private individual that was generous enough to donate the funds for this project completely. The project is, of course all the equipment or most of it is all leased or rented. But the people that are actually doing to work are actually local employees. There's no outside contractors doing any of this work."
