TEMPORARY RAMP OPEN AT PK’S WEST SIDE PARK
The Brazos River Authority has installed a new, temporary boat ramp at Lake Possum Kingdom’s West Side Park, across the reservoir from the BRA’s other public use areas. The new ramp, which is covered by 4 feet of water at its end, restores boat access to the park for the first time since the permanent ramp was closed due to low water levels from the drought. The temporary ramp, next to the closed ramp, is open and ready to use. For more information on PK recreational areas, please click here.
USDA OFFERING EMERGENCY LOANS TO
DROUGHT STRICKEN FARMERS, RANCHERS
The drought has hit Texas farmers and ranchers hard, to the point that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has declared several Texas counties disaster areas due to drought damage in 2014. This includes many counties in the Brazos River basin. Farmers and ranchers in these counties may qualify for federal emergency loans to help them recover. To learn more please click here.
