Greenprinting is a systematic approach for identifying areas that offer the highest conservation benefit for water quality protection and other regional resource priorities. The Trust for Public Land (TPL) has applied the Greenprinting process in over 40 communities and watersheds across the country.

TPL in partnership with NCTCOG and several local government and stakeholder groups has conducted three Greenprints in the North Central Texas region. NCTCOG is supporting the efforts of local governments and stakeholders to Greenprint watersheds to protect the region’s water supply lakes. The three areas that have undergone or are currently undergoing a Greenprint include:

  • Lewisville Lake East Study Area
  • Lake Arlington Study Area
  • Lake Worth Study Area

Greenprinting Stakeholder Involvement and Resources

The Greenprinting process involves a diverse stakeholder group including local governments, special districts, large businesses, property owners, homeowner associations, and other interested parties with an interest in the watershed and water quality.
