In 2006, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality recommended designation of the North-Central Texas – Trinity and Woodbine Aquifers Priority Groundwater Management Area, which includes Tarrant County and surrounding counties.
The Northern Trinity Groundwater Conservation District (District) was created by the 80th Texas Legislature in 2007 with the enactment of House Bill 4028 (Appendix A).
On March 11, 2010, the Board of Directors of the District adopted the Temporary Rules for Water Wells in Tarrant County, Texas. The Board of Directors amended those rules on December 8, 2011.
The Groundwater Management Plan for the District was adopted by the Board of Directors on May 13, 2010. On May 7, 2015, as required by Chapter 36 of the Texas Water Code the Board of Directors readopted a revised Groundwater Management Plan for the District.
