District Management Plan Renewal Complete

The District’s staff has completed the renewal of the required management plan. Our management plan satisfies the requirements of SB 1, SB 2, HB 1763, the statutory requirements of Texas Water Code (TWC) Chapter 36, and the rules and requirements of the TWDB.

CUWCD-DistrictManagementPlan-TWDB-CertificateCUWCD recognizes that the groundwater resources of Bell County and the Central Texas region are of vital importance and that local management provides essential localized leadership, local discernment, local accountability, based on local oversite, and local expert understanding of the resource. Preservation of this most valuable resource can be managed in a prudent and cost effective manner through education, cooperation, and developing a comprehensive understanding of the aquifers. The greatest threat to CUWCD in achieving its stated mission is the misunderstanding of the resource by elected officials, property owners, and water users. Scientific understanding can support localized management of the groundwater resources, if the district continues to invest in science based research to bolster understanding of local conditions. CUWCD’s management plan is intended to serve as a tool to focus the thoughts and actions of those given the responsibility for the execution of the District’s activities.
