Groundwater Workshop (Cypress Creek Project)

April 19, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Click for agenda

Well owners and groundwater users across Hays County are invited to a Groundwater Workshop on Wednesday, April 19 from 11-1.  Join for the full workshop in-person or watch presentations live through a virtual edition.  RSVP links below.

Presentations will include information on troubleshooting tips and tricks for water supply wells during drought, interpreting data from area springs and groundwater monitoring sites, and drought and groundwater management. This workshop is part of the Cypress Creek Watershed Protection Plan. Speakers include Robin Gary of the Watershed Association, Charlie Flatten of the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District, and Marcus Gary of the Edwards Aquifer Authority.

After the workshop, staff will be available to screen well samples for conductivity (which can estimate total dissolved solids) and to help search for drillers reports online (useful information in well completion).

    • If interested in the water screening, participants can fill a clean bottle with water from the closest water faucet to the well head. Rinse and reuse a plastic water bottle.  This is not fancy science–just a ballpark estimate of conductivity.
    • If interested in locating a drillers log, participants are encouraged to investigate the original house and/or well owner’s last name (often show on County appraisal records under the History section: https://esearch.hayscad.com/).

Reserve your spot:

The full, in-person workshop is limited to 45 participants due to the room capacity. Please let Robin Gary (robingary@wimberleywatershed.org) know if your RSVP status has changed to free up space for others. There will be a limited, virtual option for folks that cannot make the trip to the Community Center.  We’re using Eventbrite to track sign-ups and submit pre-workshop questions.  Click the RSVP link below to reserve your spot either in person or virtually for the Groundwater Workshop!
