Groundwater Management Area 11
Joint Planning Meeting
Citizens in Groundwater Management Area 11 interested in planning for their groundwater resources
The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) announced a Groundwater Management Area 11 Joint Planning Meeting held by groundwater conservation districts located in or partly in the management area. Attendance is free and open to the public.
It is Wednesday (Nov 7) at 10:00 am at Nacogdoches City Hall,
202 E. Pilar St., in Nacogdoches.
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 a management area. The TWDB 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 11 consists of the following groundwater conservation districts: Neches and Trinity Valleys Groundwater Conservation District, Panola County Groundwater Conservation District, Pineywoods Groundwater Conservation District, and Rusk County Groundwater Conservation District.
Counties within Groundwater Management Area 11 include Anderson, Angelina, Bowie, Camp, Cass, Cherokee, Franklin, Gregg, Harrison, Henderson, Hopkins, Houston, Marion, Morris, Nacogdoches, Panola, Rains, Rusk, Sabine, San Augustine, Shelby, Smith, Titus, Trinity, Upshur, Van Zandt, and Wood.
