Recently a rumor has been circulating around the Lake, to the effect that the level of Lake Livingston will be dropped 10-12 feet during the scheduled construction of a hydroelectric facility at the Livingston dam. NOT TRUE. Construction of the hydroelectric plant is a possibility, but an executive of the Trinity River Authority, which operates Lake Livingston, stated that construction will employ a coffer dam, and lake levels will not be impacted. Operation of this plant, if built will be “run of the river”, to minimize operational impact on the Lake. For more information, contact the Trinity River Authority
