Trinity Floodway

More than tracks and trails

TRWD’s extensive flood risk management system encompasses Lake Bridgeport, Eagle Mountain Lake and 27 miles of floodway levees built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers along the Trinity River. Those structures provide vital flood protection to area residents and businesses.

In 2015, record rains nearly pushed TRWD’s lakes to their limits. When this happens, the district has a designated flood team that monitors rainfall and streamflows and manages lake releases until there is no longer a threat to the public. Our engineer’ experience and expertise in such situations also helps minimize the impact of heavy rainfall on the Trinity River as is moves through Fort Worth. TRWD engineers also work closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Enigneers to coordinate releases from Benbrook Lake into the Clear Fork of the Trinity River.
