In order to better accommodate the public, the District has changed its hours. We are now open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We're still requesting that all landowners with wells within the District boundaries permit or register their wells. We want to reiterate that we are in no way attempting to infringe upon the rights of landowners. Rather we are attempting to protect the water rights of all the citizens within the District.
We fully believe that water will be the 'hot topic' during this next legislative session. More stringent guidelines could be set down for all groundwater users in the state of Texas. This is why we advise all individuals to get their wells officially recorded, permitted or registered in the next six months.
We hope our new hours
make this process a little easier for everybody. We are also willing to meet
with landowners at their convenience to complete paperwork and answer questions.
Please, if you have a well that is NOT registered or permitted within the District
Boundaries, do not hesitate to contact our office at 325-597-2785 or by email
at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also just drop in. We're located on the north-east
side of the square in Brady. Registration and permit forms can be downloaded
from our website http://www.hickoryuwcd.org. If you choose to use the forms
from the website, please submit a map with the location of your well or latitude
and longitude of that well.
