When it rains to the north of the lake and on the lake, it WILL rain on this reservoir.

A few facts
1. digging into ground water table does not provide any storage.
2. 17 feet will require at least 5 feet higher levees, but maybe more depending on the interior leves use to control sloshing and wave overtopping of the levees.
3. Thousands of acres of treatment cells will be required
4. millions of cubic yards of canal and flow-way excavation required.
My prediction, Ill probably be dead before its operational and I don't plan on dying any time soon.
These things take a couple years design, and multiple phases of construction for about 6-10 years.
Oh and Billions of dollars!
Long long way to go and all we decided so far is to use land we already bought for the EAA reservoir.
