System Federal Reservoirs

The US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) operates eight flood control reservoirs within the Brazos River basin that, through a contract with the federal government, also serve as water supply impoundments for the Brazos River Authority system of reservoirs.

Lakes Proctor, Whitney, Aquilla, Belton, Stillhouse Hollow, Georgetown, Granger, and Somerville store water for use by municipal, agricultural, industrial, and mining use.

Similar to the Authority's three water supply reservoirs, water contracts are available to lakeside owners for the purpose of watering lawns and livestock. These contracts are available through the Brazos River Authority with approval by the Corps of Engineers.

To request a lakeside Residential Water Permit, please fill out a request form by clicking HERE for a fillable Microsoft Word version, or HERE for a PDF version, and returning the form to the Brazos River Authority with a check for the amount indicated. When the Authority receives the completed form and payment, a final contract will be supplied for your signature to be sent to the Corps office. For additional information, please contact Kathy Rios (254) 761-3193 or 888-922-6272.
