Joe Pool Lake is one of Midlothian’s critical raw water sources. To protect and improve water quality in the Joe Pool Lake Watershed, the Trinity River Authority (TRA) of Texas is inviting citizens to participate in the development of a watershed protection plan. A project kick-off meeting will be held on November 12, 2020 (in person and virtually) from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Ruthe Jackson Center in Grand Prairie, located at 3113 South Carrier Parkway. TRA emphasizes that participation by stakeholders, including residents, landowners, businesses and developers, is vital to the success of developing a plan that will protect this precious water supply, as well as the aquatic and wildlife that inhabit the watershed. Registration for this event is required. To register for the meeting or for more information about the watershed, go to http://www.trinityra.org/joepoollakewpp. See complete TRA announcement here.
