Tarrant Regional Water District

TRWD’s George W. Shannon Wetland Water Reuse Project provides up to 100,465 acre-feet per year of water supply for the District’s rapidly growing service area. The District currently provides raw water to more than 1.8 million people in 11 counties, but that number is expected to increase to 4.3 million by 2060. This project helps the District meet those demands and pushes back the need to construct additional water supply reservoirs.

Located on Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Richland Creek Wildlife Management Area on the Navarro-Freestone County line, the system consists of a series of sedimentation ponds and wetland cells that naturally treat water diverted from the Trinity River and put it back into Richland-Chambers Reservoir for future use. A similar project will be built at Cedar Creek Reservoir in the near future. The entire system now encompasses 2,000 acres. Operation of the wetland system is closely coordinated with Texas Parks and Wildlife biologists to maximize the wildlife benefits that a project of this nature can provide.
