Who is Responsible?

The TRWD (Tarrant Regional Water District)

The downstream lakes are typically kept full for the summer months when their residents and users are most apt to use the lakes. This is in direct conflict with the primary purpose of flood control as when the downstream lakes are full the lakes have no capacity to serve as retention, thus actually causing flooding.
