Why: 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, the management area’s accomplishments, 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 expected future needs, used for regional water planning, groundwater conservation district management, and permitting groundwater withdrawals.
Who: Groundwater Management Area 11 consists of 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.
