Watershed Protection

 For Vital Drinking Water Supplies and for Quality of Life in the Community

Watershed Protection logoThe area around Lewisville Lake in Denton County is rapidly being transformed from a rural setting to urbanized communities.  Population growth and development will continue.  In the public interest, it is urgent that the potential effect on water quality and the water supply for this region not be taken for granted.

Communities in the Lewisville Lake watershed are knitted together by the many water courses that extend into and through neighborhoods.  A coordinated program for Watershed Protection offers every community the opportunity to work with nearby communities on common strategies.  Pursuing a shared vision about Watershed Protection allows communities to achieve better results.  The goal is to preserve and safeguard the quality of water resources and quality of life - - right where we live. 

On behalf of the communities located in the watershed of Lewisville Lake, the Upper Trinity Regional Water District is coordinating a Watershed Protection Program for mutual benefit.  Each community has a strategic opportunity to help preserve and protect natural features of the watershed, including creeks, flood plains, riparian zones, wetlands and greenbelts.  Also, each citizen can become informed about the watershed and can help protect water quality in everyday activities at home and at work.
 

The above graphic shows what is commonly referred to as the “Urban Water Cycle.”  It follows the journey of water from its start in the watersheds of the local water supply lakes, to the treatment and distribution of drinking water, to the treating of wastewater and back into the streams and lakes in our area.  The graphic was designed to increase knowledge and appreciation for watershed protection and the value of water and infrastructure.
