NTMWD Wilson Creek Plant update

June 5, 2022 – The Bypass line construction on the east-west incoming line corridor (second corridor when going north) is done, but they’ve left a lot of piled up and torn up dirt by one manhole. More significantly, there is a project in the works to add another incoming line to that corridor by widening the corridor. They will start by clearing the trees on one or both sides of the corridor, on weekdays. Be cautious when entering the corridor going to the east or west sides of the loop. Later they will position giant pipes (60+ inch diameter pipes) along the corridor. More news when that is about to happen.

Do Not Park on Rolling Meadows or side roads in St Paul

Parking horse trailers on Rolling Meadows Rd (which leads to the Collin Park picnic tables) or any of its side roads creates a safety and access hazard for the residents there.

Riders along Trinity Trail

Riders along Trinity Trail

The Trinity Trail Preservation Association (TTPA) was established in 1996 as a non-profit all-volunteer trail preservation organization.

Our main purpose is to maintain the 25.5 mile long trail on Corps of Engineers land on Lake Lavon and encourage hikers, joggers, nature lovers, photographers, and trail riders to use the scenic trail.

This multi-purpose trail offers a relaxing way to get close to nature without a long drive. On a weekend day you’ll find scout troops, nature lovers, horse back riders and families out for the day enjoying the trail. No wheeled vehicles or motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail.

Active Organization

In addition to maintaining the 25.5 mile long trail, the TTPA holds trail rides, cookouts, work days, educational events and fund-raising activities. The organization also works with area environmental groups, schools, scout troops and individuals to educate the public about parks, trails and recreational facilities in the north Texas area.
