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.

Jacob's Well Natural Area - Hays County Parks just announced that Jacob's Well is closed for swimming. Flow at Jacob's Well has been below 1 cubic foot per second for several weeks. Low spring flow impacts water quality at the spring and downstream. It also indicates that groundwater storage in the aquifer is low, which translates to low water well levels. This week's rain wasn't enough to generate significant recharge, so PLEASE continue to conserve and limit outdoor water use. We've got to make the current groundwater supplies last until wet conditions return.For more info on area Drought impacts, visit: wimberleywatershed.org/impactareas/watershedprotection/water-monitoring/ ...
