Ecosystem Restoration

Ecosystem Revitalization

While previous channelization and levee construction has provided a measure of flood protection to Fort Worth's central city, it left much of the Trinity River a broad, straight trapezoidal vessel with little environmental character. For the last few decades, groups like Streams and Valleys, Inc. and the Tarrant Regional Water District have taken major steps toward enhancing the river’s ecosystem. This effort continues with the Trinity River Vision project.
