Protect Texas Land and Jobs Oppose the Marvin Nichols Reservoir
In the Northeast corner of Texas, residents are facing a devastating event. It’s not a natural disaster, but a man-made one.
And it’s preventable.
The Marvin Nichols Reservoir, proposed on the main stem of the Sulphur River in Red River, Titus, and Franklin Counties, would flood 66,000 acres of hardwood forest, farms and ranches, and irreplaceable wetlands.
An estimated 130,000 additional acres would also be removed from private land ownership for mitigation purposes. The project would use eminent domain to take away the homes and heritage lands of thousands of fellow Texans.
