Please join Preserve Northeast Texas for a Town Hall meeting to discuss the proposed Marvin Nichols Reservoir and how it will adversely impact Texarkana and the surrounding region. While the Reservoir has been under discussion for decades, residents have been able to successfully push back against the largest planned land-grab in recent Texas history… until now. Media are invited to attend this FREE public event to learn more about this project, and how individuals can help STOP MARVIN NICHOLS.
