Groundwater meeting July 26 in Pleasanton
A Groundwater Management Area 13 Joint Planning Meeting, held by groundwater conservation districts located in whole or in part of the management area -- Wilson, Atascosa, Bexar, Gonzales, Guadalupe, and Karnes counties, will host a meeting Thursday, July 26, at 10 a.m. in the Evergreen Underground Water Conservation District, located at 110 Wyoming Blvd. in Pleasanton.
Groundwater conservation districts, including the Evergreen Underground Water Conservation District, are required by HB 1763 to conduct joint planning within groundwater management areas. The groundwater conservation districts are required to meet at least annually, and a key part of the joint planning process is to establish desired future conditions for the relevant aquifers within a management area. Based on the desired future conditions, the Texas Water Development Board will calculate managed available groundwater values, which will be used for regional water plans, groundwater management plans, and permitting.
