Aquilla Lake Reallocation Study

Aquilla LakeThe Phase II Aquilla Lake Water Supply Reallocation study investigates reallocation of storage capacity within Aquilla Lake. The findings of the study are presented in this integrated reallocation report and environmental assessment (EA). Aquilla Lake is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) reservoir located in rural Central Texas just southwest of the City of Hillsboro in Hill County. The lake was formed at river mile 23.3, along Aquilla Creek by Aquilla Dam. The primary streams flowing into the lake are Aquilla Creek and Hackberry Creek, with discharges from the lake flowing into Aquilla Creek below the dam. The Aquilla reservoir covers a surface area of approximately 7,000 acres at the top of the flood pool elevation of 556 feet above mean sea level (ftmsl), and 3,060 acres at the top of conservation pool elevation of 537.5 ft-msl. The non-federal sponsor for the study is the Brazos River Authority (BRA).
