Rainwater 101: Trinity & Glen Rose Aquifers
From what I’ve read, the Trinity recharges around .1 to 2 inches a year (it’s deep and thus slow to recharge). That is the deepest well and only the new houses in Saddletree go down to that well. It’s between 600-1000 feet down. The Glen Rose is the one that is in dire straights and all the older houses in Saddletree pump out of that one. The Glen Rose sits on top of the Trinity.
All projections state that the Trinity cannot keep up with current demand nor future growth.
