• Hays Trinity needs your support! Our local state representative has filed an important bill in support of the Hays… ,
Important New HTGCD Meeting Date!
now scheduled on 1st Thursday
but check the calendar.


HTGCD thanks all who have scrutinized HB 4618 and made suggestions. We agree that Section 2, as drafted, is problematic and does not reflect the Board’s original intent. We asked that it be revised and are awaiting the next draft. Converting intent into legal language is a process of drafts and revisions, and this is an example of that process in action.

Again, the district thanks all who provide input on these matters. HTGCD is not a faceless agency – it is made up of five volunteer elected members from throughout the community and four staff members working with the community to fulfill the State’s mandate of groundwater conservation, preservation, recharge, and prevention of waste and to ensure that groundwater is used efficiently and at sustainable rates. We look forward to ongoing discussion and thank all who participate.

Under advisement from the Governor’s office to slow the spread of Covid-19, the District office is currently closed to the public except by appointment. If you need assistance, please call (512) 858-9253 or email Staff3@haysgroundwater.com. Thank you, and be well.

The Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District has moved into 30% Curtailment Stage of groundwater pumping in the Jacobs Well Groundwater Management Zone and 20% Curtailment Stage district wide. In order to help ensure the health of the aquifer in the Jacobs Well Groundwater Management Zone and its residents, please protect your aquifer by limiting water use.
