      The Trinity River, which flows into Trinity Bay, is the f!lajor river in the area. The San Jacinto River, which flows into the northwest part of Galveston Bay, is of minor importance. The Trinity ranks first in average annual discharge when compared to other Texas rivers (Lankford, ). Recent studies of sediment flux and storage in the lower Trinity River, however, indicate very low fluvial sediment inputs to the Trinity River delta and Trinity .

The Clean Water Act of is credited with improving water quality across the USA, although few long-term studies tracking hydrologic, chemical, and biological responses to cleanup efforts exist. The Trinity River of Texas was plagued by poor water quality for more than a century before passage of legislation to reduce point source pollution from the Dallas-Fort Cited by: 9.

Inthe Trinity River in the Dallas-Fort Worth area was characterized by the Texas Department of Health as a "mythological river of death." With a rapid expansion of industry and population and only primary wastewater treatment beginning in the late s and secondary treatment in the mids, water-quality conditions in the area were poor.
