History: Hoping to raise awareness and appreciation of the Trinity River, Lewisville Lake, their respective shorelines, and 16 local creeks that feed into these waterways, Keep Lewisville Beautiful (KLB) partners with Keep Texas Beautiful, Keep America Beautiful, and the City of Lewisville to host an annual Trinity Trash Bash Celebration to clean our waterways.
Both the Trinity River and Lewisville Lake play an enormous role in supplying water to many Texans. The Trinity River is 715 miles long—its collection basin covers 17 counties, 17,965 square miles and is the primary water source for over 6 million Texans in the upper basin and 5 million Texans in the gulf coast region. That’s over half of the states population! The Trinity River and its water basin also accounts for nearly 6% of our State’s landmass. Lake Lewisville is part of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and is comprised of over 233 miles of shoreline and 9,000 protected acres of nature. In addition to providing drinking water to Denton and Dallas County communities, Lake Lewisville is also a recreational area with a multitude of activities available, such as fishing, water sports, boating, biking, and miles of scenic hiking trails. It has even been named the official "Urban Bass Fishing Capital of Texas”.
KLB supplies participants with cleaning supplies, waterway education, free t-shirts, and goody bags as well as door prizes to show our appreciation for all of our volunteers who participate.
KLB is one of 42+ regional affiliates that works with T.R.E.E.S. (Trinity River Environmental Education Society) to help promote the Trinity Trash Bash and clean waterways in Texas.
