Lake Meredith is governed by the Canadian River Compact. The States of New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma are all parties to the compact created by agreement of the three states and the federal government in 1950. According to the compact, New Mexico can hold 200,000 acre-feet in Ute Lake before it has to release water to Texas. Texas also can only hold 500,000 acre-feet in Lake Meredith before it has to release water for Oklahoma.
