Hickory Underground Water Conservation District No. 1
Serving Central Texas since 1982
On the Square in Downtown Brady
The District was created by an order of the Texas Water Commission on June 9, 1982, and organized under the terms and provisions of Article XVI, Section 59 of the Texas Constitution and Chapters 35 and 36 of the Texas Watder Code. We were formed to "formulate, promulgate, and enforce rules and regulations for the purpose of conserving, preserving, prevention of waste, protecting, and recharging" the waters of all aquifers within the District boundaries. In short, our mission is to protect your groundwater.
We cover approximately 1.7 million acres over an stretch that includes all of Mason County and portions of McCulloch, San Saba, Concho, Menard, and Kimble Counties. The elected board is comprised of five directors.
The Board generally meets on the second Thursday at least quarterly at the District office, located on the northeast side of the square in Brady. For information on board meetings and posted agendas, go to Texas Register and type in the agency name (Hickory Underground Water Conservation Dist No. 1).

We are working on a new interactive map to meet all your needs. Please, take a few minutes and visit the site below.
This is an interactive Map App with various layers including all the wells with links to logs, faults, depth to top of Hickory, etc.
This is a new ALL IN ONE APP Map. We recently added two Ellenburger layers: one with points and one with contour lines created from those points. This is still a work in progress so it is not 100% accurate.
If you're using the Surface Geology layer, you can use this jpg as a more in-depth legend. The heights of the rows are not scaled to thicknesses. Geologic Units and Groundwater Potential
