The Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District has been under fire by water marketers, municipalities and legislators for the last fifteen years for taking a conservative "go-slow" approach to mining the aquifer underlying Lee and Bastrop counties. The District's strongest advocates have always been landowners and residents who early on fought off San Antonio's aggressive attempt to grab groundwater from the deep and slow recharge Simsboro formation of the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer underlying Lee, Bastrop, Burleson and Milam counties. The mass movement of this water affects millions of central Texans from Bryan-College Station to Hays County to San Antonio.
Landowners, residents and a number of community organizations are preparing for an accelerated clash in the courts, giving rise to a new non-profit organization, the Simsboro Aquifer Water Defense Fund.
