From its inception, Lake Texoma has created conflicts among users of its natural resources, including hydropower, water supply, flood control, and recreational users. Many attempts have been made by the Corps of Engineers to ameliorate conflict and to find acceptable solutions. Legislative acts occasionally have been required to resolve conflicts. The Red River Compact Commission and the Lake Texoma Advisory Committee are effective in resolving some of the controversies arising from allocation of resources at Lake Texoma. Other disagreements may arise in the future.
