Lake Livingston is an 83,acre mainstream impoundment on the Trinity River in Trinity, Polk, San Jacinto, and Walker counties. The reservoir was constructed in by the Trinity River Authority (TRA) and the City of Houston for municipal, agricultural, and industrial purposes.

The rating curve for this reservoir has been updated and replaced with data from the Texas Water Development Board's Report Livingston Reservoir: % full as of Recent Historical Statistics. Trinity River Watershed Trivia. The Trinity River begins near the Texas-Oklahoma border in Clay, Archer, and Montague counties and from the DFW confluence, flows miles to Galveston Bay, near Houston. There are 1, miles of major tributaries that drain to the river. The West, Clear, Elm and East Forks form the headwaters of the Trinity River.

Some low water crossings inundated with cattle and grazing and low water areas under water. Minor flooding of agricultural lands used for cattle grazing will occur. Low water crossings near the river will begin to flood. Minor lowland flooding will begin. View over USGS real-time stream, lake, reservoir, precipitation, and groundwater stations in context with current weather and hazard conditions on both desktop and mobile devices. Follow @USGS_TexasFlood and @USGS_TexasRain on Twitter to get current water level and precipitation data during flooding or severe rainfall events.

Ground-water samples were collected from wells in the outcrops of the Trinity, Carrizo-Wilcox, and Gulf Coast aquifers during February-August to determine the quality of ground water in the three major aquifers in the Trinity River Basin study unit, Texas.

These samples were collected and analyzed for selected properties, nutrients, major inorganic constituents, trace elements, pesticides. TRA provides clean water for human, environmental and economic well-being through the wastewater treatment process. Every year, our wastewater treatment effluent improves the water quality of the Trinity River, transforming a water body once referred to as a "river of death" into a valuable resource.
