Water Source

The water supply for the City of Marshall is Big Cypress Bayou.  Water is pumped 10.5 miles and then flows by gravity 4.5 miles to the Water Treatment Plant.
 
The water rights permit held by the City of Marshall from Big Cypress Bayou allows for an annual diversion of 16,000 acre-feet.  Additionally, the City of Marshall has entered into a contract with the Northeast Texas Municipal Water District to purchase up to 9,000 acre-feet of water per year from Lake O' the Pines.
