AUSTIN -- Thirteen landowner associations and organizations expressed their support Jan. 12 for Senate Bill (SB) 332 by Sen. Troy Fraser. According to a Jan. 12 Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association press release, SB 332 clarifies that landowners have an ownership interest in the groundwater beneath their land.

“Landowner’s ownership interest in groundwater has been called into question in the courts and by some groundwater conservation districts. SB 332 clarifies the law so landowners can be assured that this property right is protected,” said Dave Scott, president of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association.

“Landowners support groundwater conservation districts and helped create them to protect their ownership interests in groundwater, not take them away,” Scott said.

“For more than a century, Texas landowners have claimed the right to the groundwater beneath their land. Senator Fraser’s legislation will make it clear that groundwater conservation districts must respect this property right when enforcing regulations,” said Texas Farm Bureau President Kenneth Dierschke.

Landowners are encouraged to contact their state senator and encourage them to support SB 332. Landowners are also encouraged to contact their local groundwater conservation district and ask them where they stand on this issue.
