    • Year End Monitoring Data Review December 11, 2013
    •  The District manages new well construction including business and commercial well permits.  The District is charged to gather information needed to make sound decisions and provide information to citizens and local agencies.
    •  Part of our responsibility is to collect water level data throughout western Hays County.  We have 44 monitoring wells each with its own hydrograph and rainfall comparisons.  Wells are monitored monthly and uploaded to the District’s website for the public’s review
    • November 2012 vs. November 2013 Overall Well Water Levels are up 5.7 feet
    • January – September 2013 Rainfall totals: Dripping Springs: 24.07 inches Wimberley: 22.05 inches
    •  As of December 11, 2013, the District has declared a return to drought stage Alarm. To permit holders, this means a 20% curtailment in their production cutback.  Domestic and Agricultural wells are exempt from District production curtailments, but are encouraged to reduce during drought times.
    •  The District uses three drought triggers: The Pedernales River, the Blanco River and the Palmer Drought Severity Index  To move back to drought stage Critical, the two rivers must flow for 30 consecutive days below the drought stage trigger.  Also reviewed are the drought conditions indicated within the Palmer Drought Severity Index for our area.
    •  Please go to our website, www.haysgroundwater.com and check out our Water Level Monitoring map and see how close you live to one of our monitoring wells.  You may be able to compare our historic well level data to your well level.
