POSGCD approves guidelines for final pair of aquifers

MILANO—The Post Oak Savannah Groundwater Conser vation District (POSGCD) adopted guidelines for two more aquifers during the monthly meeting Tuesday.

General Manager Gary Westbrook said preliminary desired future conditions (DFC) were adopted for the Yegua Jackson and Brazos River Alluvial Aquifers.

“This completes our DFC adoption for all the aquifers in the POSGCD,” he said.

Adoption of DFCs is part of the Groundwater Management Area (GMA) 12 joint planning process. A GMA-12 joint planning meeting is set for 10 a.m. May 26 at the Milano Community & Civic Center. Waivers
