WVWA and Landowners Win Favorable Ruling in Golf Course Suit
WVWA and the individual Plaintiffs have won a favorable ruling from the Court in the case of Wimberley Valley Watershed Association, Johanna L. Smith, H.K. Acord, Janet Acord, James R. McMeans and David Glenn vs. Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District, Defendant and Wimberley Springs Partners (WSP) Intervenor.
Plaintiffs filed suit seeking to require the District to grant us a contested case hearing on the application of WSP to pump 997 acre feet of water per year from five wells in the vicinity of Jacob’s Well for a golf course development.
Both the District and WSP filed Motions for Summary Judgment seeking to have our suit thrown out. The matter was heard by Senior District Judge Dwight E. Peschel on February 26, 2013. The Court has ruled in our favor denying the motions.
