Sharing a Precious Moment

On May 10, 2023 the Board of Directors of the Headwaters Groundwater Conservation District (HGCD) in Kerr County unanimously approved a rule change that will increase the minimum acreage for new wells from 5 acres to 10 acres. The goal of the rule change is to reduce the number of new wells pumping groundwater out of the aquifers in Kerr County that are experiencing alarming decreases in water levels. Not only was the decision unanimous, but the citizens attending the open hearing were harmonious in their statements of support for the future of our water sources in Kerr County. I was blessed to experience this moment of community in a shared concern with such a positive outcome. Even in the current political climate, we can come together!
