The Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District
The Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District was created by an act of legislature to protect the water supply for the residents of Bastrop and Lee Counties, Texas. That is its sole mission.
Under Texas law, a water district is the only tool available to protect our groundwater supply.
The Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District is governed locally by ten citizens, (five from each county) who have been appointed by their respective County Commissioners Courts to serve as directors for a term of four years. Their charge is to determine how best to protect the underground aquifer from over pumping so that there will be enough water for everyone, now and in the future.
