The Sulphur River Basin is in the northeast corner of Texas. The basin includes all or part of Fannin, Hunt, Lamar, Hopkins, Red River, Franklin, Titus, Morris, Bowie, Cass and Delta counties. The headwater streams are the North and South Sulphur Rivers. These rivers originate in Fannin County. The Middle Sulphur converges with the South Sulphur at Cooper Lake. These rivers all converge and flow eastward into Wright Patman Lake and exit Texas south of the city of Texarkana. The Sulphur River Basin drainage area is approximately 3,558 square miles.
Our web site is intended to be a place where the public can access information about the Authority and the Sulphur River Basin. This site will also provide updates on various projects being undertaken throughout the basin, and serve as a forum for the public to provide input.
