Lake Wichita Chapter of Friends of Reservoirs Designated Fund
Matching Funds Available
Lake Wichita is the third oldest reservoir in the State of Texas, completed in 1901. It has served the region proudly as the “Gem of North Texas,” as a recreation destination, as a social mecca, as a driving economic force, as a haven for the wide-use and conservation of fish and wildlife resources, and as a foundation for community growth by serving as a drinking water source. Having surpassed its expected 100 year life span, in its present state, Lake Wichita is no longer able to provide significant social, economic, ecological, or recreational benefits to the community. With your support, together we can return Lake Wichita to a state in which it provides significant economic, social, recreational, and ecological benefits to our community for another Century and beyond.
