Trinity Calendar of Events
The Clean Rivers Program operates under the Clean Rivers Act, which was passed by the Texas Legislature in 1991 with the goal of assessing and improving the state’s water resources.
The Act authorizes the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to levy fees on wastewater and water rights permits to cover the expense of the program. TCEQ then contracts with river authorities or regional entities to perform specific tasks within each river basin, mostly involving water quality. Typically, the most developed and populous areas of the state, such as the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the fourth largest metro area in the nation, contribute substantial funding to the CRP. The area is a vast watershed with streams, creeks, rivers, and stormwater all coming together and gathering trash and pollutants on their way down to the Gulf of Mexico.
The Trinity River has a long history of water quality challenges, and we invite you to join the many volunteers who help clean up along the river. Call 214-671-9500 for more details.
