The primary source of water for the lake is the Medina River, with additional inflows from Parker Creek and Black Creek. The lake serves as a source of drinking water and irrigation for surrounding agricultural areas. The lake also provides recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming.

During droughts, the lake's water levels can drop significantly, impacting its recreational and agricultural uses.
