Board of Directors Approve Change to District Rules

At the Regular Board Meeting held in Richmond, TX on September 28, 2016, the Board of Directors authorized a change in the District’s Rules to allow for an exemption for certain permittees from the well metering requirement. The Board action changed rule 8.2 to except wells five inches or less in inside casing diameter from the metering requirement where there is a reasonable basis to determine that pumpage will not exceed one million gallons per year. Wells qualifying for this exception may not be connected with any other well or aggregate system and the groundwater may not be used for any outdoor use or filling of ponds. Please contact the District office if you have any questions or would like additional information.
