Representatives from several organizations interested in Lake Texoma’s future will meet at Kingston High School tomorrow for a wide-ranging discussion of the lake’s future.

State Sen. Jerry Ellis, a long-time defender of water rights, will be keynote speaker at the session, which will begin at 1 p.m. Robyn King, founder of “Save Lake Texoma” and Lisa Davis, deputy director of “Restore Lake Texoma State Park,” will moderate the meeting, which was created to bring together key government agencies and experts, public leaders, citizens, and business owners from both sides of Lake Texoma.

Panel discussions will address lake health, the implications of water intensive hydro-power generation during periods of drought, the impacts on fish and wildlife and tourism-related businesses, and natural events impacted by low water levels at Lake Texoma.

Questions to be addressed include planning for drought and flood control at the lake, and whether Oklahoma and Texas officials can work together on solutions.
