POSGCD okays management plan

MILANO—After nearly a year in the works, board of directors for Post Oak Savannah Groundwater Conservation District adopted the group’s official management plan and rules at their June 12 regular meeting.

POSGCD general manager Gary Westbrook said that there were no public comments made during hearings on the plans, nor during comment sections of regularly called meetings.

Also during the June 12 meeting at the district’s Milano office, directors heard about violations of rules by W-5 Drilling of Anderson.

Westbrook said the company was not completing wells according to state standards and that several complaints have been made to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations about W-5.

“Some of the wells they had done didn’t work,” Westbrook said. “Of the people I have talked with, they have all received refunds (from W-5).”

In other business, directors learned a letter had been sent to Scott Carlson of Metropolitan Water Company, L.P. of Brenham clarifying guidelines and rules with the POSGCD.

It was in regards to the maximum production of groundwater permitted to be produced per acre within the district.
