Do we need another study?
I’m not opposed to economic development or the idea of a lake built on those premises. But such a project should not undermine other needed projects, such as Tarbutton Road or developing Lake D’Arbonne for potable water.
My reasons for opposing a feasibility study for a reservoir in Lincoln Parish are simple.
First, such a feasibility study has already been done. In the early 1980s the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, Louisiana Tech University and USGS teamed up for such a study and put together the first model.
