Hays GCD will consider water claim

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District will hold a public hearing today to evaluate a Trinity Edwards Springs Protection Association, or TESPA, claim. According to a news release from TESPA, “This public hearing is in response to a notice of intent to sue filed by TESPA alleging that the wells and well field constructed by Electro Purification were constructed without a necessary permit from the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District. This notice is a requirement to filing suit under Chapter 36 of the Texas Water Code. In addition to filing the notice of intent, TESPA has filed suit in Hays County state district court in San Marcos. To date, TESPA has not sought preliminary injunctive relief in state court because it has not been necessary to stop further development of the wells.” The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at Dripping Springs City Hall, 511 Mercer St.
