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.

May bacteria results for Cypress Creek and the Blanco River near Wimberley are available. Thanks to all the Wimberley Water Advisory Group volunteers for collecting the 11 samples last Monday. Bacteria counts along Cypress Creek were remarkably low considering the low flow conditions. The transition of downtown businesses to the centralized sewer could be improving water quality in Cypress Creek. Only a few businesses still need to connect. We will be able to keep an eye on trends with monthly bacteria sampling during the swim season. The WWAG sampling is supported the Wimberley Civic Club, the Wimberley Lions Club, the Wimberley Chamber of Commerce, and the Watershed Association. wimberleywatershed.org/impactareas/watershedprotection/bacteria-sampling/ ...
