  • Surveys
  • Stakeholder Comments

Meeting Agenda

scope of work

Background

    • 81st Texas Legislature funded study through Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)

scope of work5

Task 1

    • Develop stakeholder list and contact information

Scope of Work

scope of work6

Task 1 cont.

    • Develop and implement a survey for GCDs to obtain information required for study
    • Examine rules, plans, and procedures to determine if they are based on sound science.

Scope of Work

scope of work7

    • Evaluate GCDs for enforcement of substantial compliance with adopted rules
    • Tabulate number of enforcement actions since September 1, 2007

Scope of Work

scope of work8

Task 3

    • Evaluate current regional and state water plans and all Carrizo-Wilcox WMS for conflicts with GCD Management Plans

Scope of Work

scope of work9

Task 3 Cont.

    • Identify, tabulate, and describe existing and projected WMS that may/will impact groundwater use from the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer, including brackish groundwater

Scope of Work

scope of work10

Task 4

Scope of Work

scope of work11

Task 5

    • Review available records from GMAs 11, 12, and 13 and evaluate science behind ultimate Desired Future Conditions recommendations

Scope of Work

scope of work12

Task 6

    • Evaluate Groundwater Availability Models to assess model runs of representative pumpage scenarios

Scope of Work

scope of work13

Task 6 Cont

    • Evaluate Groundwater Availability Models to assess
      • temporal variability of recharge
      • sources of water for pumpage,
      • timescales for impacts of pumpage on outcrop and Queen City –Sparta Aquifer

Scope of Work

scope of work14

Scope of Work

  • Task 6: Sources of Water for Pumpage
    • Pumping in confined aquifer can obtain water from
    • Increased recharge from outcrop zone
    • from overlying and underlying aquifers in confined zone
steady state vs transient system
Steady-State vs. Transient System
  • Steady-state system:

recharge + discharge = 0

  • Transient to a new steady state:

change in recharge (increase)+

change in discharge (decrease) +

change in storage (decrease)=

pumpage

  • New steady-state

(water table/piezometric surface lower):

recharge + discharge = 0

  • How long is the equilibration time?

Task 7

    • Determine if the presence of anthropogenic contaminants in the recharge zone and the potential pollution of the aquifer are issues that should be addressed, and if so, by whom

Scope of Work

scope of work20

Scope of Work

  • Task 7: Water Quality
    • Water quality will be evaluated using TWDB and TCEQ databases and previous reports
    • Stakeholders can submit information on any water quality issues of concern
surveys

The majority of the information that will ultimately be presented in the final report for The Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer Study will be obtained through two surveys

Surveys

surveys22

Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer Groundwater Conservation District Survey

  • Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer Interested Parties Survey

Surveys

surveys23

Information requested by surveys will be submitted by the respondent via the Internet

  • All completed surveys are due March 31, 2010
  • Survey results will be made available for public inspection
