VICTORIA – The Texas Water Development Board will host a Groundwater Management Area 15 joint planning meeting on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 9:30 a.m. at the Pattie Dodson Health Center located at 2805 N. Navarro St. in Victoria.

Attendance is free and open to the public.

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.

TWDB will calculate modeled available groundwater values, based on the desired future conditions, which will be used for regional water planning, for groundwater conservation district management plans, and for permitting groundwater withdrawals.

Groundwater Management Area 15 consists of the following groundwater conservation districts: Bee GCD, Calhoun County GCD, Coastal Bend GCD, Coastal Plains GCD, Colorado County GCD, Corpus Christi A.S.R. Conservation District, Evergreen Underground Water Conservation District, Fayette County GCD, Goliad County GCD, Lavaca County GCD, Pecan Valley GCD, Refugio GCD, Texana GCD, and Victoria County GCD.

Counties in Area 15 include Bee, Calhoun, Colorado, DeWitt, Fayette, Goliad, Jackson, Karnes, Lavaca, Matagorda, Refugio, Victoria and Wharton.
