Water Samples are a required part of  water quality monitoring at Tire Creek Lake.  Director Binion routinely collects samples from all corners of the lake along with the Dam area and sends them off for independent  testing.  The results of those tests are a proactive approach to detecting any possible issues that may be occurring to our water.  This information is shared with our water partners, The Army Corp of Engineers and our neighboring counties throughout the year. These collections take place on the water and also from the creeks that flow into the lake.
