Other indi- viduals requesting the earliest possible beginning of the lake included Morris I. Waller, mayor of Huntsville, E.B. Cape, public works director for Houston; Elliott T. Bowers, president of Sam Houston, State University; Paul A. Newton, assistant director of agriculture for the Texas Department of Correc- tions; and numerous city councils and chambers of commerce. Unanimous endorsement of Tennessee Colony Lake was given by the Houston Chamber of Commerce in response to a letter from Bruce Smith. Smith's letter said the lake would provide mainte- nance of good quality water in Lake Livingston, a major water source for Itouston, assure availability of a low cost, long range water sup- ply, and prolong the useful- ness of Livingston as a water supply because of decreased sedimentation below Tennessee Colony. The Trinity River Author- ity has requested funds for acquisition of property at this time in anticipation of water needs in the state 15 years hence, that being the time it will take to build the lake. At the same time, TRA is working with various lignite coal mining interests in the area to assure that the 300 to 500 million tons of lignite coal in the bottom of the proposed Tennessee Colony Lake can be mined by the time the lake is developed to its fullest potential.

The anti development environmentalists "who por- tray the Trinity River as a natural stream are doing a great injustice to you and the citizens of the basin," : Reagan told the sub- : committees. Navarro County Judge Robert C. Dunn stressed that the need for Tennessee Colony Lake has been proven through numerous studies by the Corps of Engineers and several uni- versities, as well as by "day to day" experiences with the river. Most of the opponents of "structural development" of the river live behind levies . which protect them from the Trinity in north Dallas, Dunn said. The non-structu- ral approach would provide more benefits and cost the taxpayer less. Although structural development will probably cost more it will also provide for water sup- ply, prevention of erosion, fish, wildlife and environ- mental enhancements, water transportation, and flood control. These, he felt, would be of far greater value to present and future taxpayers going "to look at these water projects sympathetically, a committment echoed by Sen. Mark Hatfield of Oregon, another member of the sub- committee. Those who oppose con- struction of Tennessee Colo- ny Lake for fear it will be the lweather project  t0l velopment of te rrinity which includes a barge canal, disagree with Judge Link's claim that the lake has no connection with the contro- versial canal. Their fears :° found support in the state- !ment from County Judge Winston Reagan of Header- S son County. Reagan's statement fore- . told the beginning of Ten- nessee Colony Lake as the beginning of progressive and comprehensive development of the entire Trinity River basin. Immediate construc- tion of the lake was urged by Reagan in the interest of economy. "More delays will only mean that this lake, which we all realize must be built, will cost more." Reagan differed sharply with those who believe the Trinity should be left alone ,'to preserve its natural beauty." "The Trinity is not a natural river," he said. "It has been dammed at its headwaters, channelized and levied in its upper reaches, dredged in the lower basin, and into which pollutants from the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex." of Mississippi, said that all water projects must be fully researched nowadays with concern for environmental impact and even the social and economic effects of each project. Johnston did say, how- ever, that the committee was mittees will be known in Fire Levels about 30 days, said Bruce is hired to replace Hubert Boyd who retired April 1. Reagan also reminded commissioners there is a need to approach the pro- blem of redistricting the county's four precincts be- cause the populations are out of balance. Precinct one has 5,782; two has 5,754; and approved a renegotiated contract with Jack Daniels to prepare parking lots at Kickapoo Creek, Coffee City and Holiday using a seal coat at a total project cost of $51,795. This reflects a cost of $2.80 per yard for the seal coat instead of $1.90 for an oiled parking lot. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Depart- ment is picking up the tab for the boat ramps. The commissioners sold an old tractor to Vernon Owens of Murchison for the high bid of $761. Commissioners approved than a non-structural ap- proach. Tennessee Colony boost- ers are losing a friend in the Iiouse sub-committee with the retirement next year of chairman Sam EvAns of Tennessee. EvAns was re- minded by several Texas congressmen of his "rela- tives" who had emigrated to the community of Tennessee Colony, from which the lake takes its name. EvAns, who has long been sympathetic to the construc- tion of Tennessee Colony and other major water pro- jects, was honored with an * award from the Trinity River Association at a reception the night before the hearings. Approval by the sub- committees of the TRA request for $1 million would mean that work on the lake could begin this year, with an anticipated completion date in approximately 15 years.
