Amarillo begins improvement project on McDonald Lake


The City of Amarillo (COA) is conducting an improvement project to the pump/intake infrastructure at McDonald Lake, located at John Stiff Memorial Park.

McDonald Lake is being partially drained to allow for the completion of the improvement project. The project is estimated to be completed by the end of January, weather permitting.

“The pump and intake systems at McDonald Lake are in need of repair. This requires the lake to be drained to address these improvements,” said COA Director of Public Works Donny Hooper. “We did not want to drain the lake during peak recreational use time, such as during the summer and early fall. Once the repair/improvement project is complete, this will resolve the problem.”

The city is in the process of draining the lake to make repairs to the pump/intake structure.
