Since 1965, visitors to Lake Meredith National Recreation Area focused on the lake and activities like boating and fishing. But over the last decade, the lake has gradually shrunk due in part to drought conditions and water use in the surrounding communities. This shows us just how important water resources are to local inhabitants - including humans as well as wildlife and plant communities.
