Welcome to the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District (HTGCD)
Our mission is to conserve, preserve, recharge and prevent waste of groundwater within western Hays County. In support of the District’s mission we gather data, develop geologic and aquifer science, provide information, and manage non-exempt commercial water use.
Click here for all public Board meeting agendas. Regular Board meetings are held at 5pm on the first Thursday of each month. Special Board meetings are held as needed. Please check agendas for locations.
The District is currently in Emergency Drought Stage. Water wells are failing at an unprecedented rate. No new permits for production or non-exempt well construction will be issued until conditions improve. Please conserve water!
Please read our August Aquifer Health Assessment. The monthly assessment utilizes water level data from the District’s well monitoring network to present current water level conditions in the Trinity Aquifer. Also included is a timestep of aquifer conditions from the past year.
