Texas Water Alliance Limited (TWA), 3267 Bee Caves Road, Suite 107-509, Austin, Texas 78746 has submitted applications to the Gonzales County Underground Water Conservation District (GCUWCD) to drill and produce thirteen (13) new water wells. The thirteen (13) TWA wells will be located approximately four and one half (4.5) miles west of Waelder, Texas and eight (8) miles northeast of Harwood, Texas. The proposed use of the wells is for public water supply. TWA proposes to produce approximately 15,000 acre feet of water per year at an average rate of approximately 715 gallons per minute per well.

TWA has also applied to GCUWCD for a transportation permit to transfer water from the thirteen (13) production wells to a transportation facility located adjacent to State Hwy 304 between I-10 and US 90 in Gonzales County. The transportation facility is capable of handling the 15,000 acre feet of water per year requested by TWA and will transport the water to the Canyon Lake Water Service Company in addition to other communities and water utilities. The GCUWCD will consolidate its consideration of the thirteen (13) drilling and production applications with the application for a transportation permit. As part of the applications, TWA has agreed to enter into agreements with the GCUWCD relating to mitigation, monitoring, and negotiated export fees. In response to requests by landowners, TWA has requested the GCUWCD’s board of directors to grant a variance to its spacing rules pursuant to section 18(b), so that the properties belonging to Ted Boriack and Robert Mayfield are not included within the spacing shadow of TWA’s proposed well nos. 6 and 7.

During the meeting and hearing, the board of directors will receive evidence submitted by TWA in support of the applications and requests and will discuss and take action regarding the approval or denial of the applications and related requests by TWA. Since all protests of the applications by persons previously granted party status have been withdrawn and the hearing is not a contested case hearing, the board of directors will not receive or consider evidence from persons other than the applicant and the staff of the GCUWCD. However, the board of directors will allow time for public comment.

The agenda for the public hearing and meeting is as follows:
