Waterway Litter Response Team

Did you know Lake Dallas, and much of the surrounding area, is part of the Lake Lewisville watershed? This means that all rain and runoff in our City will eventually lead to the lake. The less litter and debris entering Lake Dallas' creeks and waterways means less litter and debris entering our lake. 

Want to be a part of the solution in cleaning up our waterways? Join our Waterway Litter Response Team by contacting Hayden Scarnato,
