A Groundwater Management Area 9 (GMA 9) joint planning meeting, held by groundwater conservation districts located in whole or in part of the management area will be held Monday, Dec. 15, at 10 am. The meeting will be held at the Boerne Convention and Community Center, Second Floor, 820 Adler Road. Attendance is free and open to the public.
Texas Water Code Chapter 36 requires groundwater conservation districts to conduct joint planning within groundwater management areas. The groundwater conservation districts must meet at least annually to review groundwater management plans, accomplishments of the management area, and proposals to adopt new or amend existing desired future conditions for the relevant aquifers within the management area.
The Texas Water Development Board will calculate modeled available groundwater values, based on the desired future conditions, which will be used for regional water planning, groundwater conservation district management plans, and for permitting groundwater withdrawals.
Groundwater Management Area 9 consists of the following groundwater conservation districts: Bandera County River Authority and Groundwater District, Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District, Blanco-Pedernales Groundwater Conservation District, Cow Creek Groundwater Conservation District, Edwards Aquifer Authority, Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District, Headwaters Groundwater Conservation District, Medina County Groundwater Conservation District, and Trinity-Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District.
Counties within Groundwater Management Area 9 include Bandera, Bexar, Blanco, Comal, Hays, Kendall, Kerr, Medina, and Travis.
