Reservoir Description

Greenbelt Reservoir is a 1,990-acre impoundment on the Salt Fork of the Red River five miles north of Clarendon in Donley County, Texas. The reservoir was approximately 1,800 acres in 2003 and 2004. It is owned by the Greenbelt Municipal and Industrial Water Authority and is used for water supply and recreational purposes. It has a history of water level fluctuations. Water levels have remained relatively stable since 2000 with fluctuations of only about 2 ft. Angler and boat access is good. At the time of sampling, the habitat was primarily rocks, sand, water milfoil and flooded terrestrial vegetation.

Management Strategies
