• 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.

    This map depicts the drawdowns in the Simsboro formation of the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer which are projected by the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District to occur in Bastrop and Lee counties over 50 years of pumping under the

    25,000 acre-feet/year (8 billion gallons/year) permit

    the Lower Colorado River Authority is seeking.

     

    The mighty Simsboro is under siege -- this map depicts only the LCRA project drawdowns -- if granted, this permit will add to the drawdowns of other existing permits in the region totaling another 145,000+ acre-feet/year. To see those projected drawdowns on one map, go to our "About Us" page to see what's at stake.

    Actually, we had terrific response from our supporters to our March 25 Action Alert --- we had many calls into legislative offices and 10 people connected to SAWDF or one of our coalition groups commented on the LCRA Sunset bill at the hearing. Go here for the video of the hearing --- we were first up so easy to find us on the tape.
