A half-day hearing/trial has been set next week on June 19 at 9:30 a.m.at the Hays County Government Center, 3d Floor, in the suit filed by the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association and concerned citizens against the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District. The Plaintiffs are WVWA and individual citizens who have appealed to the District Court to require the HTGCD to hold a contested case hearing on the application of Wimberley Springs Partners to pump millions of gallons of groundwater from the Trinity Aquifer in thevicinity of Jacob's Well for a golf course development.
Judge Dwight L. Peschel from Guadalupe County has previously ruled that the District’s refusal to grant a contested case hearing was arbitrary and capricious and a denial of procedural due process. The hearing/trial next Wednesday will determine whether Judge Peschel’s prior ruling will be incorporated in a final judgment in the case.
The Hays County District Courts have moved to the new Government Center at 712 South Stagecoach Trail, San Marcos, TX 78666.
