Protecting Jacob's Well and the Springs of the Wimberley Valley

WVWA Concerned Citizens Suit Over Golf Course Pemit Schedule Nov. 13th

A hearing has been set for November 13 on pending Motions for Summary Judgment in a suit filed by Concerned Citizens and the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association (WVWA) against the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District (HTGCD).   

Concerned Citizens and the WVWA have appealed to the District Court to require the HTGCD to hold a contested case hearing on the application of Wimberley Springs Partners to pump millions of gallons of groundwater from the Trinity Aquifer in the vicinity of Jacob’s Well.   

The District and Wimberley Springs Partners  have asked the court to deny the appeal by summary judgment.  Judge Bill Henry is scheduled to hear the pending motions which could determine the outcome of the case.  The economic and environmental health of the Wimberley Valley are at stake. Citizens who are interested in protecting the flow of Jacob’s Well, Blue Hole and Cypress Creek may attend the court to show their support and hear the presentations. 

Motions for Summary Judgment are set to be heard by Judge Henry at 9 a.m. Tuesday November 13.  The matter will be heard in Courtroom 10, 3d Floor of the new Government Center for which directions from the web site are the following:
