Lake Tyler and Lake Tyler East operate under the auspices of the City of Tyler, which uses the lakes as a source of drinking water. The City monitors the Lake Tyler watershed for sources of pollution, and also patrols the lakes to enforce safety and water quality regulations, and maintains 21 miles of lake roadways, the public parks, and the public boat ramps.

The two lakes are connected via a canal located at the south end of the lakes.
