District Mission

The Pecan Valley Groundwater Conservation District provides for the conservation, preservation, protection, recharging, and prevention of waste of the groundwater within the defined boundary of the District, through sound management strategies, while protecting private property rights. The Pecan Valley Groundwater Conservation District will pursue this goal through the gathering of scientific data regarding the hydrological characteristics of the Chicot, Evangeline and Jasper aquifers that underlie DeWitt County, and the adoption and enforcement of fair and appropriate rules governing well spacing and production and use of the groundwater, and through a monitoring program to manage groundwater withdrawal within the district to a sustainable yield of the aquifer.

District Formation

The District was created by the citizens of DeWitt County through a confirmation election on November 6, 2001.
