The Aquifer Conservation Alliance has started a campaign to establish a Groundwater Conservation District in western Williamson County.
Citizens and landowners must protect and manage the Trinity Aquifer before over pumping depletes water levels beyond use. The depletion and potential permanent damage to the Trinity Aquifer will have a detrimental effect on all citizens and landowners in western Williamson County.
Without a Groundwater Conservation District, Williamson County has no ability to prevent large-scale pumping operations and densely populated developments un-suited for groundwater use from depleting this resource. Well levels are already dropping and starting to run dry due in part to over pumping. Currently, large use developers and industrial operations do not even have to request permission to gain unlimited access to our groundwater! This must stop!
We need your help today more than ever before!! We need assistance with the mounting legal and campaign costs. We must protect what little of this priceless resource we have left!!
Aquifer Conservation Alliance is a citizen led non-profit organization that is leading an effort to have western Williamson County (everything west of I-35) annexed by nearby Clearwater Underground Water Conservation District. Clearwater UWCD has successfully and responsibly managed much of the same Trinity Aquifer north of Williamson County since 1989. It's time that the part of the Trinity Aquifer extending into Williamson County has the same responsible management and the same protection from dangerous over pumping that our neighboring county does. Please donate so that we can protect what little we have left!!!
We must step in now and get this done, not only for ourselves, but also so future generations can continue to have access to groundwater. Spread the word and share it with everyone you know!!
