Deep East Texas Groundwater Conservation District

Groundwater is a major source of water in Texas, providing about 60 percent of the 16.1 million acre-feet of water used in the state.

The Texas Water Development Board is charged with the approval of groundwater management plans. All confirmed groundwater conservation districts in Texas are required to develop and implement a management plan for the effective management of their groundwater resources. As of 2013, all confirmed districts have an approved groundwater management plan or are in the process of being approved.

The TWDB provides a wide range of assistance to districts in the development of their management plan from education to technical assistance with water-planning data.
