About Us

From the General Manager

At TRA, we are proud of the many services we provide to more than 60 cities in the Trinity River basin that improve the quality of life for millions of residents.  We understand that safe, clean water is a necessity; in fact, water is the single-most essential element to life as we know it.  We have made it our mission at TRA to make access to clean water a reality for the residents of the Trinity River basin.

TRA's services have greatly improved public health and daily life in the communities we serve since our inception in 1955.  Every day, we improve water quality in the Trinity River, and we remain poised at the forefront of new technologies and innovations that will allow us to continue our clean-water services for many years to come.  Whether you're researching a school project, investigating business opportunities or looking for employment, we hope that you find this site interesting and informative, and that it augments your understanding of how important it is to wisely develop, use and conserve our greatest natural resource.
