White Rock Lake watershed
The first in the series of watersheds is one of the largest in Dallas. It covers about 100 square miles (64,000 acres) and stretches from the headwaters of White Rock Creek in Frisco to the dam at White Rock Lake. The health of White Rock Lake is directly impacted by how we manage or don’t manage stormwater within the entirety of the outlined area.
