Please Attend Feb. 26th Hearing- WVWA suit against HTGCD Golf Course Permit

Proposed Golf Course above Jacob's Well and Cypress Creek

A hearing has been set for February 26 on pending Motions for Summary Judgment in suit filed by the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association and concerned citizens against the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District.  The Plaintiffs are WVWA and individual citizens 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 for a golf course development.   

The District and Wimberley Springs Partners have asked the court to deny the appeal by summary judgment.  Judge Dwight L. Peschel from Guadalupe County is scheduled to hear the pending motions which could determine the outcome of the case at the trial court level.  Citizens who are interested in protecting the flow of Jacob’s Well may attend the court and hear the presentations.  Those who wish to attend should arrive at the Third Floor of the new Hays County Justice Center by 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday February 26, 2013.
