Region 3 Trinity Flood Planning Region

Region 3Originating in north central Texas in a highly urbanized watershed, the Trinity River and its many tributaries meander southeast on their way south to the Gulf of Mexico. The lower reaches of the Trinity River cross through Davy Crockett and Sam Houston National Forests before entering Trinity Bay just north of Galveston. Smaller streams within the basin include the Clear, East, Elm, and West forks of the Trinity River and Cedar, Chambers, and Richland creeks. There are 34 major lakes and reservoirs in Region 3.
