Water Source

Residents often wonder where their drinking water comes from. The water that we use in North Richland Hills comes from several area reservoirs and lakes.

The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) supplies raw water to the City of Fort Worth, Trinity River Authority (TRA) and more than 30 other wholesale customers. The water supplied by TRWD comes from several sources including:
  • Lake Bridgeport
  • Cedar Creek Reservoir
  • Eagle Mountain Lake
  • Richland-Chambers Reservoir
Fort Worth and TRA treat the raw water to make it “potable” meaning that it is fit to drink. The City of North Richland Hills purchases its drinking water from the City of Fort Worth and the TRA.
