    Tulsa, Okla. — The Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers established a 30-day public comment period related to closure of the Red River Chloride Control Project in four Texas counties and will host two public meetings to provide an overview of the purpose and scope of the study.

    The USACE will host informational, open-house style meetings at the Red River Authority of Texas offices in Wichita Falls, Texas, Feb. 26 from 5-8 p.m. and at the Kingston High School cafeteria, Kingston, Oklahoma, Feb. 27 from 5-8 p.m.

    The alternatives being considered in the RRCCP study will be available for review during the meetings.

    The Red River Authority office address is 3000 Hammon Rd, Wichita Falls, Texas 76310.

    The USACE is studying the potential disposition of:

    • Two low flow dams for collection of brine-laden waters at Areas VIII, and X, Truscott Lake, and Crowell Mitigation Area.
    • One brine storage lake for holding concentrated brine solutions, the necessary pumps and pipelines to transport brine solutions from the low flow dams to the brine storage lakes.
    • A 10,000-acre parcel of land used as a fish and wildlife mitigation site known as Crowell Mitigation Area.
