PK Lake Association Formally Opposes the BRA's Management Protocol Requiring Release of Water from PK to Balance Water Levels Between PK and Lake Granbury
On May 16, 2014, the Possum Kingdom Lake Association (PKLA) published it's White Paper as presented to the Board of Directors of the PKLA in support of OPPOSITION to BRA's past, current and future management protocol for RELEASING WATER FROM Possum Kingdom Lake to balance water levels between PK and Lake Granbury. The conclusion of the White Paper strongly suggests that PKLA should request that the Brazos River Authority immediately cease and desist releases from PK Lake in an attempt to balance water levels between PK and Granbury.
Subsequent to the release of this White Paper, the PK Lake Association adopted a Resolution formally requesting the BRA cease and desist the release of Possum Kingdom Lake water to Lake Granbury for balancing purposes. To quote from that resolution, "It is PKLA's position that balancing lake levels between Possum Kingdom and Lake Granbury does not provide for the greatest practicable measure of conservation and beneficial utilization of the water stored in PK, and, therefore, the BRA MUST NOT continue balancing protocols."
Copies of the Resolution and White Paper were hand-delivered to the Brazos River Authority in Waco on the morning of Friday, May 16, 2014. The same package was also delivered to other interested parties, including the State Representatives and Senators who represent the Possum Kingdom Lake area.

Further, on Monday, May 12, 2014, the Palo Pinto County Commissioners met for their monthly Commissioners Court Meeting. The Commissioners passed a Resolution formally opposing Lake Granbury's position that the "draw down ratio established by the Brazos River Authority between Possum Kingdom Lake and Lake Granbury be reevaluated and the ratio being sent from Possum Kingdom Lake to Lake Granbury be increased ..."
