In September, 1971, Stephen F. Austin State University began a study for the Corps of Engineers concerned with environmental and cultural impacts of the proposed channelization of the Trinity River. The study, undertaken in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, consisted of two phases: the first phase was a survey of the site of the proposed Tennessee Colony reservoir and the second phase was a survey of the remainder of the river from Fort Worth to the headwaters of Wallisville Lake below Liberty. The final report of the Tennessee Colony survey was submitted to the Army Corps of Engineers on January 31, 1972. This report completes phase two of the study. Topics addressed in the study include: archaeological and historical aspects, geological elements, eutrophication and pesticide elements, botanical elements, fishes of the lower Trinity River, summer birds and mammals, and forest hydrology and conceptual land use capabilities.
