Blanco-Pedernales Groundwater Conservation District

The Blanco-Pedernales Groundwater Conservation District is a political subdivision of the State of Texas. On October 11, 2000, the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC), in accordance with applicable provisions and requirements of the Texas Water Code, approved a petition for the creation of the District. In a confirmation election held on January 23, 2001, Blanco County voters approved the creation of the District, elected five Directors to the Board of Directors, and approved its authority to assess an ad valorem tax on the Blanco County property owners.

The District is located within the Hill Country Priority Groundwater Management Area (PGMA), which was designated and delineated in 1990 by the TNRCC under Chapter 35 as an area experiencing or expected to experience critical groundwater problems.

The District is responsible for the conservation, preservation, protection, and recharge of groundwater and aquifers within Blanco County. To acomplish these goals, the District will work to minimize the draw down of the water table, minimize the reduction of artesian pressure, control subsidence, prevent interference between wells, prevent the degradation of the quality of groundwater, prevent waste of groundwater, preserve historic use of groundwater, give consideration to the service needs of retail water utilities, and carry out the powers and duties conferred under Chapter 36 of the Texas Water Code.
