• Project-specific 50-year drawdown (in feet) in the Simsboro Aquifer attributable to the proposed LCRA pumpage, estimated using the state-approved Gtroundwater Availability Model and prepared by the consulting hydrologist to the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District.

    "The Siege on the Simsboro"

    SEE OUR EVENTS PAGE FOR AN IMPORTANT MEETING, SEPTEMBER 5, 2019

    _____________________________

     

    The map above depicts only the drawdowns

    which are projected by the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District to occur in the Simsboro under Bastrop and Lee counties if the Lower Colorado River Authority pumps for over 50 years under the permit LCRA is seeking.

     

    LCRA will have pumped over 407 billion gallons from under Bastrop and Lee counties during that 50-year period.

     

    If granted, this permit will add to the drawdowns of other planned projects in our counties, as well as in Burleson and Milam counties, when they come online. If those projects permitted as of 2019 pump their full permitted amounts, an additional 47 billion gallons per year will be permanently removed from our local aquifer.

     

    To see the map of projected 50-year drawdowns for those projects, go to our "About Us" page to see what's at stake.
