Clean Water for a Healthy Environment

The Trinity River Authority of Texas is a conservation and reclamation district that provides water from reservoir facilities, water and wastewater treatment, along with recreation and reservoir facilities, within the nearly 18,000-square-mile Trinity River basin. TRA also maintains a master plan for basin-wide development, and serves as a conduit for tax-exempt financing for municipal projects and as a local sponsor for federal water projects. Each TRA operating project is an independent financial entity, and TRA receives no tax revenues or appropriations.

Thank you to Foster Elementary located in Arlington for inviting TRA to present to 80 2nd - 6th grade students about the importance of our most valuable resource. The week long summer program aims to provide a rich learning environment in Reading, Math and Science. This years program theme was, "Everything Water."  The students learned about who TRA is, TRA's services and what they can do to protect our water. The presentation ended with a trivia game in which the students worked in groups and tested their knowledge for a chance to win a prize.
