Proposed lake pipeline

Bell County residents discuss a proposed water transport pipeline that would link Lake Belton and Stillhouse Hollow Lake during a public meeting on Wednesday. 

BELTON — Bell County residents concerned about a proposed pipeline to send water from Lake Belton south to Stillhouse Hollow Lake and beyond showed up at the Bell County Expo Center Wednesday evening to share their opinions.

 “I’m a long-time homeowner so this is concerning,” Janet Brown, a Morgan’s Point Resort resident, said as she attended a meeting in the Assembly Hall at the Bell County Expo Center. “I’ve seen so many changes in the lake since I moved here in ‘95. I’ve seen a lot of growth and a lot of changes in the area so this is very concerning. I think that our neighbors in our community, not just Morgan’s Point, but in Belton and Temple also, are all affected.”
