Lake Worth is the only water supply owned by the City of Fort Worth.  Although, Fort Worth owns the land, Tarrant Regional Water District has the water rights.

Lake Worth was the second municipal water supply built in Texas, constructed shortly after Dallas'  White Rock Lake. The man-made lake was constructed for $1.6 million  and was first filled on August 19, 1914. It is situated six miles northwest of Fort Worth on the West Fork of the Trinity, covering 8.48 square miles.
