The Water Protectors Fund protects our aquifers, springs, creeks, rivers – and the sole source of drinking water for thousands of people by financing critical science, education, advocacy, and legal initiatives in the Hill Country.  Click the banner to find out more and get involved.

The Wimberley Valley Watershed Association is a non-profit organization located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, born out of a love for water.

WVWA has been working since 1996 to keep Jacob’s Well, the headwaters of Cypress Creek, clean, clear, and flowing for generations to come.

Our vision is to create a greater understanding community-wide of the many benefits that flow from a respectful relationship with the land: human health, ecological health, economic sustainability, enriched community life, and the renewal of the human spirit.

HB 4146 (by T. King), if passed, would prohibit wastewater discharge into our most pristine rivers and creeks across Texas, including those that recharge the Edwards Aquifer. The bill is set for a hearing with the House Environmental Regulations Committee today, April 12th at 2:00 PM Please register your support for HB 4146 by clicking the link below. A simple “I support passage of HB 4146” in the comment section provided is enough and only takes a minute. We hope you will take the time to do so by Monday afternoon. Go to: comments.house.texas.gov/home?c=c260 then select "HB 4146 by King, Tracy O." to submit your online comment.Pristine waters--including many headwaters of Hill Country streams and rivers--deserve special protections. There are not many pristine waters left. Rep. Tracy King has been tapped as chair of House Natural Resources and is carrying several consequential bills, including the sweeping HB 4146 (SB 1747 Zaffirini) “Pristine Waters,” which identifies stream segments statewide that run clean and clear, and prohibit the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality from authorizing direct discharge of waste or pollutants into them. An estimated 2,000 miles across 44 stream segments would be protected, including the prized waters of the Texas Hill Country, among them Cypress Creek and the Blanco River. A hearing is Monday, Apr. 12 before the Environmental Regulation Committee. This one deserves special treatment--please consider submitting online comments in favor of this bill before or during the hearing.
