Greater Trinity River PCB Impairment Project

In 2013, NCTCOG began a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)-funded program supporting stakeholder involvement in understanding the surface water impairment for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in a seven county area of North Texas.  PCB levels in the Trinity River from Henderson and Navarro Counties, upstream through Dallas, along the West Fork Trinity to Lake Worth, and the Clear Fork Trinity below Benbrook Lake, are under a fish consumption advisory from the Texas Department of State Health Services. The intent of stakeholder involvement was to determine if there was a need and desire to address those PCB levels in the impaired portions of the Trinity and, over time, eliminate the need for the fish advisory.

The Greater Trinity River PCB Impairment Project included a series of stakeholder meetings which delved into the process of addressing PCB sources and potential solutions to PCB levels in the Trinity River. One of the goals for the meetings was to determine the feasibility and appropriateness of further efforts to reduce PCB levels in the impaired waters. For questions concerning the outreach effort, please contact Rachel Evans at 817-695-9223 or revans@nctcog.org.
