Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Bardwell Lake, located near Ennis, Texas, was created in 1965 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a flood control and water supply reservoir. The hydrology of the lake is controlled by the dam on Waxahachie Creek, which feeds into the lake. The lake receives water from a number of sources including Waxahachie Creek, Chambers Creek, and Cedar Creek. The lake is also fed by snowpack from the surrounding areas during winter months. Bardwell Lake is used for agricultural irrigation and recreation, including fishing, boating, and camping. The surface flow of the water is mainly from the Waxahachie Creek, which is the primary source of water for the lake. The lake is a popular destination for fishing enthusiasts, with catfish, bass, and crappie being among the most commonly caught fish in the lake.
