    Groundwater District Hearings on Proposed DFC

    THE LAST OF THE FIVE GROUNDWATER DISTRICT HEARINGS ON THE PROPOSED DFC was held by LOST PINES GCD ON AUGUST 18, at the Bastrop Convention Center. We had a good turnout, thank you all for your comments.

    Stay tuned for an update on when Lost Pines will deliberate on the proposed DFC, which we expect to happen in September --- after that, the five districts that are part of GMA-12 will come together for a final decision on the 2022 DFC. . 

    Lee and Bastrop counties' Commissioners Courts ask for rejection of proposed DFC; State Rep. John Cyrier joins in their recommendation.


    Lee County Commissioner's Court update is here. The Bastrop Commissioner's Court passed a similar resolution in July, as presented to Lee County by SAWDF, and to Bastrop County by SAWDF and Environmental Stewardship.


    Andy Wier did a great job presenting both resolutions prepared by SAWDF and Environmental Stewardship, the effect of which were to advise the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District that the two courts, on behalf of their respective constituents, request the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District to reject the proposed Desired Future Conditions.


    Go here for Rep. Cyrier's encouraging letter.
