Adopt-A-River!

We love our community and take pride in keeping the environment clean and safe. The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) does a great job of managing and maintaining four of our major reservoirs and also constructed more than 150 miles of water pipelines, 27 miles of floodway levees, over 40 miles of Trinity River Trails, plus a 2,000 acre wetland water reuse project designed to increase future water supplies for the area!
