Water meeting ahead Tuesday in Cameron

Rural aquifer stakeholders are invited to an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Farm Bureau meeting room in Cameron.

Jay Tumlinson, Post Oak Savannah Groundwater Conservation (POSGCD), will be interviewed by Bill McCutchen, meeting sponsor, about the district’s “most controversial regulations and policies.”

“Following the meeting, if necessary, there will be a short discussion on actions that may be available to landowners and other aquifer stakeholders,” McCutchen said.

POSGCD is charged with protection of aquifers, including the Simsboro, and has developed numerous policies over the years.

“The eastern half of Milam County shares the Simsboro,” McCutchen said. “Protection and water rights are key issues. Since the western (shallow) edge of the aquifer is in Milam County, local stakeholders will be the first affected by any unintended drawdown,” he said. “Robertson, Burleson, Brazos and other counties to the east would not be affected as early or as severely.”
