Groundwater: Planning for the Future
April 12, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Please join the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District and Hill Country Alliance for an in-person and interactive presentation –Groundwater: Planning For the Future– that explains the process and how community members can participate.
The Trinity Aquifer in the Hill Country is locally managed by nine county-based districts (see Groundwater Management Area <GMA-9> map). The planning process is complex but important. Please refer to this Q&A/FAQ for details, definitions, and Explanatory Reports.
State Law requires a 5-year planning process dedicated to the management of the State’s major aquifers. In our part of the Hill Country, that planning process is a collaboration between the local groundwater districts, the Texas Water Development Board, and the public. The planning outlook has a 50-year horizon, and the purpose is to establish and maintain a defined “Desired Future Condition (or DFC)” of the State’s aquifers (aquifer level in our case) over time. The details are found in the 2021 Explanatory Report and help establish future uses and conditions for the State Water Plan.
Where: Wimberley Community Center (14068 Ranch Road 12, Wimberley, Texas 78676)
When: Tuesday, April 12 from 5:30-7pm
What: A presentation by the Texas Water Development Board, discussion about the process, and public Q&A session.
