Conserving, Protecting, and Enhancing the Groundwater Resources of Montgomery County, Texas
The Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District helps Montgomery County meet its most critical water challenge—finding the water to grow without continuing to deficit-pump the Gulf Coast Aquifer. There are nearly 100 groundwater districts throughout Texas, with the first established in 1949. Overseen locally by a board of directors, with specific but limited oversight responsibilities from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Texas Water Development Board, and the State Auditor’s Office, districts develop rules and management plans that are tailored to their area’s groundwater needs.
The mission of the Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District is to manage and protect the groundwater resources of Montgomery County and to work with others to ensure a sustainable, high-quality, and cost-effective water supply for current and future needs.
