Watersheds

A watershed is an area of land that contributes water to a lake, river, or stream. All of Frisco flows into the Trinity River from 3 watersheds. The majority of the city, 76.7%, flows into the Elm Fork of the Trinity.

Our stormwater does not go to a treatment plant; it flows into lakes which are used for the drinking water supply of other cities who provide drinking water to 5.3 million people.
