Official History of Lake Cisco
Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas , a digital state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records
Lake Cisco is three miles northwest of Cisco in northwestern Eastland County (at 32°26' N, 98°59' W). The lake, located on 445 acres where Sandy Creek was dammed in 1923, furnishes a water supply for Cisco. Golf and boating are also available. Lake Cisco drains an area of twenty-six square miles. It has an operating-level capacity of 8,800 acre-feet, and its flow has been supplemented since May 1956 by pumping from nearby Battle Creek. The moderately deep clay on its shores supports numerous short grasses.Continue Reading at the Handbook of Texas
