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 three 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.
