Water Reservoirs Guarded In East Texas

   With the war in full swing, the nation is in heightened alert. More security measures are being taken to protect our water supplies from possible terrorist attacks. In East Texas, the Sabine River Authority has added security personal for 24 hour security watch over three reservoirs:  Toledo bend, lake Tawakoni and lake Fork.  Many East Texas cities receive water from the lakes, including Longview. Although officials don't believe the sites are likely targets, they are taking the measures to guard against the possibility.
