Overview: The 1,394-acre River Crest Ranch is located at the confluence of Mustang Creek and the Sulphur River in the SW corner of Red River County. The massive permitted private 550+/- ac lake (at normal pool), at this price point, provides the investor ample opportunity to further develop into a trophy fishing lake. To insure maximum lake levels during drought times the property is being offered with 2,000 Acre Feet of Water Rights out of the Sulphur River Basin.As observed while on the property, waterfowl and deer are prolific on River Crest Ranch. The current owner has not allowed hunting or fishing in over 30+ years making this a wildlife sanctuary. Located on the north side of the ranch, a favorite loafing spot for cattle and wildlife, is a cold-water natural spring that appears to flow year-round. River Crest Ranch offers many potential options and is priced at a very reasonable price point for the amount of surface water and water rights included with the sale.Location: Located in the southwestern corner of Red River County, the main ranch road sits just off of Hwy 271 south of Bogata, TX. The ranch is located approximately 19 miles northwest of the quaint downtown area of Mount Pleasant, TX. River Crest borders are formed by Mustang Creek and the Sulphur River, with the confluence of these two live water elements forming the western and southern boundary of the ranch.The ranch is located ~19 miles northwest of Mount Pleasant; ~30 miles southeast of Paris; ~120 miles east of Dallas, & ~125 miles northwest of downtown Shreveport, LA.Directions: From downtown Mount Pleasant, travel ~4 miles north to US Hwy 271. Go North on US Hwy 271 towards Bogota, travel ~16 miles and the River Crest gate will be on the left.From downtown Bogota, head southeast on US Hwy 271 towards Mount Pleasant. After traveling ~7 minutes and/or 6.1 miles, the main ranch gate will be on the right.River Crest Lake: The 550+/- acre lake sits in the central/south central portion of the property, surrounded by timber on two sides in close proximity to the banks of the Sulphur River. The massive body of water provides surface water for livestock, wildlife, and also serves as a refuge for thousands of migrating waterfowl in the winter months.Originally constructed in 1953, River Crest Lake consists of over 14,000' of homogeneous earthen embankment with an average of 23' above the original ground elevation. The impoundment is an off-channel storage reservoir which was originally maintained by direct rainfall, natural runoff and pumping from the Sulphur River as needed. The embankment designed crest elevation is 335'. The elevation of Design at Normal Pool is 330' and the lake is currently being maintained at 319'. At the current elevation it is believed that the lake is approximately 453+/- acres. Capacity at Design Normal Pool is 9,700/Ac Ft.Dam Inspection Summary Report: The dam at River Crest is considered in the intermediate size classification and is a low hazard classification. This is primarily due to the current water levels that have been maintained since power production ceased in 2010. A full report was conducted on the dam in September of 2019. This report is available upon request.Terrain: Exceptional topography for this region, just under 100' of elevation change. The highest point on the property at 391' above mean sea level would make a fantastic home site overlooking River Crest Lake. The lowest points on the ranch are 299' above mean sea level, one found at the confluence of Mustang Creek and Sulphur River, and the other low point being downstream along the banks of Sulphur River at the southeast corner of the ranch.Water Wells: The majority of the ranch is located within the Nacatoch Aquifer providing the new owners an opportunity for a new water well.Other Surface Water: There is an abundance of diverse surface water across the ranch ranging from a live spring, creeks, rivers and sloughs to small ponds scattered throughout; providing both livestock and wildlife with reliable water sources year-round.Wildlife: Whitetail deer stalk the woods on River Crest, along with dove, feral hogs, squirrels, bobcats, coyotes, and a variety of songbirds populate the area. Migratory waterfowl flock to River Crest Lake and the wetlands surrounding it, being the largest body of water in its region and right in the middle of the Central Flyway. Waterfowl have been seen in large numbers on the ranch and have never experienced being hunted on River Crest Lake, using its' diverse yet vast water resources as a wintering ground. It's not uncommon to see Canada geese (year-round) and the occasional flock of snow geese use the lake and surrounding water as a stop off point during their winter migration. Mallards, teal, pintails, gadwalls, and widgeon are the most common species that frequent the ranch.Fisheries: While never officially stocked, River Crest Lake seems to have been naturally stocked. A zero-fishing policy maintained by the current owner has allowed the fish to reproduce in a naturally balancing ecosystem. The lake appears primed and ready for the next owner to implement a fish management plan, a trophy bass lake in the making.Fencing: The pasture areas are fenced with some cross fencing to facilitate rotational grazing. All fences are in fair to good condition.Pastures and Grasses: River Crest boasts abundant, fertile soils fostering productive pastures. Common Bermuda dominates the landscape over native grasses and are highly productive for cattle and good for wildlife habitat. There is over 300+/- acres of grass available for either hay production or grazing on the ranch. The majority of the upland terrain at River Crest is made up of Woodtell fine sandy loam lending well to grass production. Gladewater clay is found mostly within the wooded creek bottoms and low-lying areas.Access: The Eastern border of the ranch has approximately 1.3 miles of frontage along US Hwy 271, providing excellent access to the property.Airports: There are three airports in close proximity to River Crest.- Clarksville / Red River County Airport (LBR) 3000'x50'- Cox Field in Paris, TX (PRX) Jet Fuel A Avail. 6002'x100'; 4624'x150' & Helipad- Franklin County Municipal (F53) 3900'x60'Hospitals: There are two hospitals in close proximity to River Crest.- Titus Regional Medical Center-Mt.

$10,844,825  •  2,935 acres
PROPERTY OVERVIEW: Manicured, improved hay pastures roll gently into thick hardwood forests through Hausler Creek Ranch. This is an exceptionally diverse property including 2,935 +/- contiguous deeded acres. Approximately 470 acres of improved pastures produce an average of over 7,000 round bales of hay in three cuttings per year without livestock production. The owner has recently implemented a cattle feeding program designed to accommodate an Angus herd consistently grazing up to 500+ head under rotational grazing while maintaining a significant hay crop yielding 1,500 - 2,000 4 x 6 round bales. Two large live creeks, numerous creek draws, one small lake stocked with largemouth bass, six stock tanks and five managed wetland units provide ample water for livestock and wildlife. Multiple larger potential lake sites exist throughout the ranch. Managed wetlands attract migrating waterfowl in the flooded green timber reservoirs.IMPROVEMENTS: The improvements on Hausler Creek Ranch are limited to a single mobile home, electricity, water, a septic system, good fencing and multiple pond/lake dam sites. Located minutes from Interstate 45, the Hausler Creek Ranch is 1.5 hours drive time from Dallas and two hours from the Houston metro area. Location, productive agriculture, beautiful terrain, abundant wildlife, and practical improvements combine to create a phenomenally diverse ranch offering.LOCATION: Hausler Creek Ranch is located 7.5 miles west of Fairfield, Texas in Freestone County. The ranch location enables a convenient drive from Dallas (90 miles north) and Houston (150 miles south). Austin is located approximately 155 miles southwest of the property.Teague Municipal Airport is located approximately 9 miles southwest of the ranch and offers runway length of approximately 3300 feet.THE LAND/SOILS: Throughout the county, the soils vary from loamy to claypan with a sandy or loamy surface. On the Hausler Creek Ranch, Bermuda grasses and strategically planted food plots for wildlife thrive in the sandy/clay loam soils. At least six types of oak trees - red oaks, live oaks, sand oaks, post oaks, pin oaks, and water oaks - grow in dense groves and forests along with ash, blue jack, elm, and black walnut trees. Junipers give cover to wildlife, river birch grow along the creeks, and bursts of white dogwood blossoms herald the arrival of spring.ELEVATION: Hausler Creek Ranch possesses well above average topography for the geographic area. Scenic rolling hills descend into numerous pinch points, drainages, fertile creek bottoms and hardwood forests. Elevations on the property range from approximately 350 feet to 465 feet resulting in over 110 feet of elevation change.WATER: Three spring-fed creeks run through the ranch. The largest two, Hausler Creek and Caney Creek, converge beyond the ranch with Sneed Creek and Walnut Creek. There is one stocked lake and six ponds on the ranch. Two water wells are located on the property and co-op water serves the improvements. The ranch boasts significant elevation change that appears to be well suited for additional lake sites, if desired.WETLANDS: There are five managed wetland units strategically placed along the hardwood lined creeks and spring-fed low-lying bottomland that range in size from a 3.25 to 20+/- acres. Two of the units have water control structures to permit flooding in the fall and facilitate proper drainage and drawdown in the spring. The flooded green timber, which holds water in the winter, is superb for duck hunting. In dry years, the wetlands can be supplemented with water pumped from the adjacent live water creeks.AGRICULTURAL OPERATIONS:Cattle and superior hay production make a significant contribution to the diversity found on Hausler Creek Ranch. These features also represent significant income/income potential for the property. Ranch pastures are currently being grazed by an Angus herd owned by a notable producer of all natural premium beef. While ranch ownership is not interested in stressing improved pastures, rotational grazing practices yield conservative carrying capacities up to 550+ head while simultaneously harvesting between 1,500 and 2,000 4 x 6 round bales of hay per year.Hay & Forbs- approximately 470 acres of the ranch are planted in Jiggs & Tifton 85 Bermuda grasses which produce an average of 7,000+ 4'x 6' round bales per year from three cuttings when not grazed. The horse-quality hay has been tested to have a protein factor of 17 or better. Many of the pastures have been over-seeded with Ball Clover, a legume and natural fertilizer that restores nitrogen to the soil when it dies off in late spring.Approximately 50 acres of food plots planted in clover, wheat, and oats have been strategically located in the middle of the property to provide forage for deer and other wildlife. The soil in the hay fields and food plots is tested annually to determine the best fertilizer mix to maximize yield. Potash was applied in 2016. Controlled burn schedules have been applied to many wooded areas to encourage the growth of forbs and nutritious native broadleaf plants, for deer and wildlife.FENCING: The ranch has been fenced and cross fenced with miles of exterior low fencing consisting of 5-strand barbed wire. Most openings have cattle guards instead of gates to facilitate internal ranch travel. Interior cross fencing, gates and cattle guards are in above average to excellent condition. All exterior fence lines were cleared in 2018.ROADS: All-weather roads, built over a caliche base with large culverts where needed, provide excellent access throughout the ranch.WILDLIFE: Hausler Creek Ranch is known for its excellent hunting opportunities. The oak groves, hardwood forests, creeks, and food plots create a terrific habitat for whitetail deer and other wildlife species. On this low-fence ranch, where hunting is fair chase, the deer population has been judiciously managed with supplemental corn and protein feed placed at strategic sites. While it is typical to see a 130 - 140" buck on Hausler Creek, this ranch also produces larger Boone and Crockett sized deer in the 160-180"class. The property has been enrolled in the Texas Managed Lands Deer Program Level 3 for the past 18 years.At the peak of waterfowl migration, thousands of puddle ducks converge on the managed and natural green timber wetlands. Mallards, widgeons, gadwalls, teal, pintails and wood ducks flock to capture floating acorns, abundant smartweed in the shallow water hardwood bottoms providing unforgettable moments in time.IMPROVEMENTS:A single mobile home is nestled in a grove of hardwood trees near the southeast corner of the ranch.

The lake has a storage capacity of 15,000 acre-feet at normal (Conservation) pool with a maximum storage capacity being 26,500 at the top of the dam. The lake encompasses a surface area capacity of 1,080+/- acres at the normal elevation of 611 feet above mean sea level. A drainage basin consisting of approximately 8 square miles of land contributes water to feed Valley Lake. Maximum depth located thus far is estimated to be 38 feet using standard consumer boat mounted depth finders. Based on aerial imagery from February 1995 through March 2014, the average water surface acreage was 992.6 +/- acres with an average of ~22.35 miles of lake frontage. Based on the same aerial imagery, it is estimated that the lake fluctuated between ~933 surface acres and ~1,016 surface acres.Valley Lake Dam History: Valley Dam, which forms Valley Lake, was authorized by the State of Texas in 1959. Construction of the dam was completed in 1961 to provide a cooling water reservoir for the operation of the Valley Steam Electric Station. A Certificate of Adjudication authorized an impoundment of up to 15,000 acre feet of water. The plant has been decommissioned and deconstructed. Valley Dam is a 2,770' long homogeneous earth fill embankment with a maximum height of 55 feet above the original streambed. The impressive and well-engineered dam looks west at sunset, providing amazing views off of Valley Lake.Dam Report: Freese and Nichols, Inc. conducted a dam inspection on September 26, 2017, and provided an updated report in December, 2017 for Valley Lake Dam.Dam Project Description- Valley Dam was authorized by the State of Texas, Permit No. 1939 in 1959. A Certificate of Adjudication authorized an impoundment of up to 15,000 acre-feet of water for industrial purposes. Construction of the dam was completed in 1961 to provide a cooling water reservoir for operation of the Valley Steam Electric Station. The power plant has been decommissioned and demolished.Valley Dam is a 2,770-foot long homogeneous earth fill embankment with a maximum height of 55 feet above the original streambed. The crest of the dam is at elevation 617.5 feet. The upstream slope is 3H:1V with an 8-foot-wide berm at elevation 600 feet. The upstream slope is protected by 24-inch rock riprap from the berm to the crest. The downstream slope is 2.5H:1V with grass slope protection and a 12-foot-wide berm at elevation 590 feet. Seepage control within the embankment is provided by an 18-inch thick sand blanket drain that intersects the toe of the embankment on the downstream slope. The downstream slope has a longitudinal concrete- lined flume (v-ditch) on the berm to collect surface runoff from the upper portion of the slope. Flow in the longitudinal flume is conveyed to the toe of the embankment via four transverse concrete-lined flumes. No instrumentation or survey monitoring programs exist for Valley Dam.The low flow outlet, made operational as of May 2018, consists of an 18-inch diameter gate valve controlled concrete pipe with an upstream invert elevation of 605.75 feet and is located at Station 21+00, near the right abutment of the embankment. The discharge area is protected with a concrete V- shaped channel.The service spillway is a 200-foot wide, concrete-lined channel located in the right abutment with a crest elevation of 611 feet. Two lines of baffle blocks provide energy dissipation at the end of the concrete-lined channel, approximately 50 feet downstream from the crest. The service spillway is separated at its left side by natural topography from the right abutment of the main embankment. There is no emergency spillway at Valley Dam.In Texas, the TCEQ is the regulatory agency responsible for the administration of State dam safety laws. Dams are classified according to the size of the dam and the potential for loss of human life and property damage downstream from the dam in the event of a breach of the dam. The size classification of small, intermediate, or large is based on the storage in the reservoir and the height of the embankment. Intermediate size dams are those with maximum storage between 1,000 and 50,000 acre-feet and/or a maximum height between 40 and 100 feet. Valley Dam, which has a maximum height of 55 feet and maximum storage of 26,500 acre-feet at the top of the dam, is an intermediate size dam.The hazard classification can be low, significant or high. A high hazard dam is usually located where failure can cause serious damage to agricultural, industrial, and commercial facilities, important public utilities, main highways, and railroads. TCEQ criteria define a high hazard structure as one which could potentially impact three or more residential structures, or result in probable loss of seven or more lives. The area downstream of Valley Dam is primarily agricultural land in the floodplain of Brushy Creek and the Red River. There are, however, more than three homes located along Farm to Market (FM) Road 1753 near Brushy Creek about 3.6 miles downstream of the dam, and numerous houses further downstream in the Red River floodplain. The FM 1752 and FM 1753 bridges over Brushy Creek would also be overtopped in the event of a breach of the dam. Valley Dam is therefore classified as a high hazard dam.According to State criteria, as an intermediate size, high hazard dam Valley Dam is required to pass 88 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF). As determined by the probable maximum flood study and breach analysis completed by Freese and Nichols, Inc. in 2005, Valley Dam passes 100 percent of the PMF event, and is thus hydraulically adequate in its current condition.A full Freese & Nichols, Inc. report, dated December 2017, containing specific details concerning maintenance and repair recommendations can be made available to prequalified Buyers upon request.Terrain:Topography at Valley Lake Ranch is impressive with over 100 feet of elevation change. The high point of ~671feet above mean sea level is found in the southeast corner of the property, and a low point of ~566 feet is found in the northeast corner. The property is mostly treed with sporadic native pastureland desirable for grazing cattle. The landscape lends itself well to recreational land. Highly desirable building sites exist around much of the lake as sunsets and sunrises are truly remarkable from many points overlooking this impressive body of water.Additional Water Sources: There are 3 earthen water wells located on the property. The Neches River Basin aquifer is found below Valley Lake Ranch.A rural water line runs into the approximate center of the ranch from County Road 1752.Brushy creek flows from the northeast corner of the property into Valley Lake.Wildlife: Valley Lake Ranch is home to Whitetail deer, feral hogs, Bald Eagles, dove, Rio Grande Turkey, bobcats, coyotes and of course, waterfowl. Since its inception in 1961, migratory waterfowl have utilized Valley Lake as a wintering ground during peak migration. Features including a major body of water in the central flyway, coupled with natural wetlands in close proximity to the Red River, attract migratory waterfowl populations during peak migration.Fisheries: Valley Lake has proven to be a prolific fishery. Our team fished Valley Lake for 3 days and 6 fishermen caught over 300 Largemouth Bass. Notable fish caught included seven fish over 8 lbs., 4 fish over 7 lbs and 40+ fish between 5-7 lbs. This natural fishery will serve as a solid foundation primed for the next owner to introduce a fish management program capable of contending with the list of renowned and legendary North Texas Bass Fisheries. Additional species of fish caught by the HRC team include Sand Bass, Crappie, Drum and Channel Catfish.Recreation: Water depths at Valley Lake range from highs up to approximately 38 feet and all depths in between that and the shoreline. Multiple coves, inlets, and creek channels compliment open water to create a spectacular, broad recreational offering. In addition to sport fishing and hunting, Valley Lake lends well to jet skiing, water skiing, sail boating, scuba diving, and general motor boating. Kayaking and float fishing can be excellent in the coves and inlets on the lake.Noted Whitetail deer populations, tree cover, topography and natural forbs provide ample opportunity for bow hunting. Fertile soils and sub soils on the property may yield high quality improved wildlife food plots to supplement natural forage components and/or cultivated crops to benefit migratory bird hunting.Fencing: The perimeter of Valley Lake Ranch is fenced.

Property Description: 1833.536+/- acres with a HUGE PRIVATE 550+/- ACRE LAKE set amongst scenic rolling terrain heavily wooded in oak and elm forests. Clear right-of-ways, scenic elevation change and excellent building locations. Raw land with limited improvements allows for a blank canvas to with endless possibilities.Area Historical Information: McLennan County is deep seeded in history with the first Spanish exploring expedition in 1721 by Marques de San Miguel de Aguayo. Records show that during his expedition he camped near the Brazos River and a major tributary, Bosque, Spanish for woods.Multiple native Indian tribes lived and roamed the area and was occupied by three main tribes - Caddo, Tonkawa and three branches of the Wichita - Tawakoni, Towash and Waco. The Tonkawas were the most predominant in number and referred to as "Tonks" by the European settlers. They lived in skin tents and followed bison, deer and other small animals. They were considered to be roaming hunter/gatherers which provided for many conflicts by the neighboring Comanche to the west.Further settlement of the area began in 1837 when Fort Fisher, a Texas Ranger outpost, was established but abandoned a few months later. Waco Village was later built on the site of an ancient agricultural village of the Waco Indians. A two-league grant of land by Gen. Thomas J Chambers was the start of development in the area where land was sold for a dollar an acre. The Chisolm Trail later crossed at a shallow ford in the Brazos River where the town of Kimball was formed, west of Waco. In 1845, Neil McLennan moved onto land on the South Bosque River. In 1850, named after Neil McLennan, McLennan County was carved out of the Milam District and the same year Universal Immigration Company of England purchased 27,000 acres from Richard Kimball where 30 families were sent to settle the area. Bosque County was officially formed in February 1854 from McLennan County totaling 989 square miles. European settlers began to populate the area in 1854 when the State of Texas offered 320 acres to each family that would settle the new county, and Norwegians took advantage of the offer believing the area to be much like Norway. In 1856, Waco Village was incorporated as the town of Waco, and a new county courthouse was erected that year. By 1859, there were 749 people living in Waco.Location: Located in eastern McLennan County, Lake Creek Reservoir is on Manos Creek in the Brazos River basin approximately four miles west of Riesel, TX. It is located approximately 12 miles east of Waco, ~100 miles from Dallas/Fort Worth, ~110 miles from Austin & ~165 from Houston, Texas.Directions: From Waco, go East on Highway 6 toward Riesel. Prior to arriving in Riesel turn south on FM 1860 going approximately ~5 miles to the first main gate on the left. Just past this gate the lake can be partially seen on the left. FM 1860 continues around the ranch and ties back into Hwy 6 in Riesel, TX.Lake Creek Reservoir: This is a superior body of water constructed by Austin Road Company in 1953. There were no expenses spared at the time of construction. The water clarity is very good being in limestone based land. The lake is considered a magnificent recreational lake. There are 3 primary drainage basins with Manos Creek being the primary source of run-off water. The lake boasts multiple scenic coves, a magnificent tree covered island in the center of the lake, deep water shorelines and duck habitat in the backwaters of the lake making this an extremely versatile body of water in an area not known to have large lakes. Maximum depth is estimated to be ~35' at the deepest point with fourteen square miles of drainage feeding the lake. Based on aerial imagery from 2005-2015 the average water surface acreage was 442.475+/- acres with an average of 9.7+/- miles of lake frontage. Also based on aerial imagery, it is estimated that the lake fluctuated between ~343 surface acres and ~555 surface acres with only three of the last ten years being less than ~400 acres. Lake Creek is a desirable lake even at lower lake levels with some of the shorelines being gravel based and blossom with native grasses providing for a clean and scenic shoreline. Fluctuation of lake level is not believed to have any impact on the quality of the reservoir.Lake Dam History: A Water Right Permit dated May 10, 1951 was granted by the State Board of Water Engineers to Texas Power and Light for constructing the reservoir. Austin Road Company began construction on September 8, 1951 and the dam was completed May 1952. Impoundment of water began in June 1952 by runoff inflow from approximately 14 square miles. The first generating unit began commercial operation April 2, 1953. The dam is highly engineered and well-constructed with an estimated cost in 1952 of $10.8M. On January 26, 1972 the permitted water capacity was reduced from 9,500 acre-feet to its now current level of 8,500 acre-feet at 405 ft above msl. Lake Creek previously operated as a natural gas fired power plant which has since been completely removed and remediated. It was in operation from 1953 to 2010.Water rights:Impoundment limit - 8,500 acre feetPermitted Consumptive Rights - 10,000 acre feetMaximum Make-Up Water per year from the Brazos River - 8,996 acre feetWater is pumped via through a pipeline from a pump station located on the Brazos River in close proximity to the lake.Dam Report: Freese and Nichols, Inc conducted a dam inspection on July 18, 2017 and provided a report dated November 2017 of the Lake Creek Dam (a full report can be made available to pre-qualified Buyers). The following is the "Project Description":Lake Creek Dam was completed in 1952 to provide a cooling reservoir for the operation of Lake Creek Steam Electric Station. The dam consists of a homogenous, earthen embankment with a length of 1,860 feet and a maximum height of 50 feet above the original streambed. Based on the 2003 inspection report, the dam's crest elevation varies from 409.75 to 410.25 feet-msl. The normal pool of Lake Creek Reservoir is elevation 402 feet-msl. The embankment has side slopes of 2.5 Horizontal to 1 Vertical (2.5H:1V) for both the upstream and downstream slopes. The upstream slope of the embankment is protected by a 1-foot thick layer of rock riprap underlain by a 1-foot thick gravel bedding layer extending from the crest to elevation 395 feet-msl (seven feet below normal pool elevation). A 4-inch thick layer of gravel protects the downstream slope. Lake Creek Dam originally had no internal seepage collection system; however, a toe drain system consisting of a 6-inch perforated PVC pipe placed in a gravel filter and surrounded by filter fabric was installed in 2007 along the downstream toe of the embankment.Discharge from the reservoir are controlled by two 20-foot tall by approximately 32.75-foot wide radial gates at the left (south) abutment. The service spillway transitions into a 40-foot wide concrete chute, stilling basin, and outfall channel. The top elevation of the spillway gates is 405 feet-msl in the closed position, and the crest of the ogee weir at the gates is elevation 385 feet-msl. An uncontrolled earthen emergency spillway with a crest elevation of 406 feet-msl and a width of 523 feet is located in the right (north) abutment of the dam.In Texas, the TCEQ is the regulatory agency responsible for the administration of state dam safety laws. Dams are classified according to the size of the dam and the potential for loss of human life and property damages downstream from the dam in the event of a breach of the dam. The size classification of small, intermediate, or large is based on the storage in the reservoir and the height of the dam. Intermediate size dams are those with a maximum storage between 1,000 and 50,000 acre-feet and/or a height greater than 40 ft and less than 100 ft. With a height of 50 feet and a top of the dam storage of 11,700 acre feet Lake Creek Dam is classified as an intermediate size structure.A dam's hazard classification can be low, significant, or high based on the downstream risks in the event of a failure. The area downstream of the dam consists primarily of undeveloped land in the floodplain of Manos Creek. Farm-to-Market Road 1860 crosses the spillway discharge channel downstream of the dam. The confluence of Manos Creek and the Brazos River is located approximately 0.6 miles downstream of the dam. Based on a visual review there are a few scattered homes located downstream of the dam; however, they appear to be located at an elevation which would likely not be in the inundation zone. Farm-to-Market Road 1860 would be classified as a minor highway; however, since it was observed to be as a school bus route, it would be considered a secondary highway. TCEQ criteria define a significant hazard structure as one where failure can cause appreciable economic loss to isolated homes, secondary highways, minor railroads, and public utilities or which could potentially impact one to six lives or involve two or fewer habitable structures. Lake Creek Dam is currently classified as a significant hazard dam.According to State criteria, an intermediate size, significant hazard structure is required to pass 56 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) based on the height and storage parameters of Lake Creek Dam. As determined by an August 2013 hydraulic study performed by FNI, Lake Creek Dam passes 87 percent of the PMF event without overtopping the embankment. Therefore, the dam is considered hydraulically adequate.Inspection Summary Report: A full Freese & Nichols, Inc. report, dated November 2017, containing specific details in connection with minor repair recommendations can be made available to prequalified Buyers upon request.Terrain: Terrain is scenic with ~120' of elevation change. Property is mostly treed with sporadic native pastureland desirable for grazing cattle. The landscape lends itself to be considered recreational land. There are highly desirable scenic views/building sites from the southernmost hilltops overlooking Lake Creek Reservoir.Water Wells: There are two known water wells on the property. One water well is believed to be ~685 feet producing approximately 248 gallons per minute (gpm). The second well is believed to be approximately ~700 feet producing approximately 245 gallons per minute (gpm). Neither of the wells are believed to operational currently but there is no reason to believe they could not be put back into use.Other Surface Water: Several small ancillary stock tanks exist as well as one small lake being approximately 3.5+/- surface acres that is partially shared with a neighbor.Wildlife: Wildlife is an untouched and untapped resource. There are whitetail deer, abundant dove, feral hogs, squirrels, bobcats, coyotes, and a variety of songbirds. Migratory waterfowl have been seen in large numbers, have never been hunted and use the lake as a wintering ground during peak migration being located just off the banks of the Brazos River, being a major flyway in the Central Flyway.Fisheries: While Lake Creek has never officially been stocked there seems to be an abundance and wide variety of fish species that have naturally been stocked and reproduced in the lake. The fish that were caught and observed while filming were largemouth bass, catfish and bluegill. The fish habitat and lake appear to be prime for fish management and additional stocking/management.Fencing: The perimeter is fenced and there is no functional cross fencing. Condition of the fencing is fair to good. A 6' chain-link fence was constructed below the dam and has been well maintained and presently in very good condition.Access: There are ten (10) gated access points into the ranch, all are secure and the lake is virtually unused. There are multiple heavy duty pipe entrances into the ranch. Manos Creek can be crossed on the east end of the ranch via a well-constructed concrete three culvert crossing.Airports: There are two airports in close proximity Lake Creek Ranch. Waco Regional Airport (ACT) is a full service airport located 5+/- miles NW of Waco and 22+/- miles from the ranch. It is a Class 1 Airport averaging 98 aircraft per day with two (2) runways measuring 6,596' and 5,896'. Additionally, TSTC Waco Airport (CNW) is located 8+/- miles NE of Waco and 15+/- from the ranch. The airport averages 131 aircraft per day with two (2) runways measuring 8,600' and 6,291'. Former President George W. Bush landed Air Force One at TSTC when visiting their family ranch during his presidency.Hospitals: There are three full service hospitals located in close proximity to the ranch. Hill Regional Hospital, Providence Health Center, Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center all located in and around Waco, Texas.School District: Riesel ISDElectricity: Oncor Electric, and Navasota Valley Co-opMinerals: Minerals are negotiable. Owner is believed to own a majority of the minerals on the ranch, but no warranties or guarantees will be made.Grazing Leases: The ranch is currently leased for grazing and hay production. Fishing and hunting have been prohibited during the current ownership.Taxes: Annual property taxes for 2015 were approximately $17,851.73 and the property is agricultural exemptLegal Description: Estimated ~1833.536+/- acres in which a plat map and legal description of the property resulting from a boundary survey conducted in 2013 can be made available to prequalified Buyers.Buyers & Brokers: Buyer's brokers must be present for all initial showings. Buyers should notify Listing Broker that they are represented prior to touring the property.
