Watershed Program

The TRWD watershed program strives to educate and inform local stakeholders and the public about their watershed, potential threats, and steps that can be taken to help improve and protect water quality.

“The mission of TRWD’s Watershed Program is to protect water supplies through responsible watershed planning and stewardship. Whether the audience includes school children or adults, urban dwellers or farmers, education is a cornerstone of water quality protection and essential for successful watershed planning.”The program gives helpful information to students and educators as well as other stakeholders interested in learning about urban stormwater management, agricultural conservation practices and basic watershed concepts.

Urban Stormwater Management

TRWD encourages and supports urban stormwater management through several avenues. The district works with the city of Fort Worth to implement a joint Stormwater Management Plan to address the problems caused by stormwater entering the Trinity River. Education about reducing stormwater runoff is key to protecting watersheds and water quality.

TRWD Rainscapes

In partnership with Texas A&M AgriLife, TRWD has developed a Demonstration Landscape project that showcases techniques to create and maintain beautiful residential landscaping that conserves water and protects water quality. Located on the TRWD main campus in Fort Worth, the landscape is open for self-guided tours, or by appointment for small tours and demonstrations.

An Educational Roadshow

Here’s a virtual lesson using our stream trailer, one of several hands-on, mobile educational experiences that we use to teach students about our water resources. It’s a great way to provide young learners an interactive experience to teach them about watersheds, how we impact them, and about the actions we can take to protect them. We all live in a watershed and the things we do on land — good and bad — have an effect on our drinking water supplies. Being good stewards of our water resources helps ensure that we’ll have access to clean drinking water for years to come.

Community Outreach

Enriching Communities

TRWD supports youth and adult education as a means to develop and support well‐informed stakeholders for ongoing environmental sustainability. The district delivers interactive learning experiences directly as well as through partnerships with local organizations.

Texas A&M AgriLife provides a variety of water‐related information and local events through their Water Education Network and 4‐H/Youth Development programs.
