County invites feedback on water, wastewater plan


The Hays County commissioners court is seeking public input as it works with the Texas Water Development Board and Hays County water and wastewater service providers to develop a water and wastewater facility plan that will address the county’s burgeoning growth and diminishing water supplies.

“Planning comprehensively and strategically is crucial to ensuring that residents in every part of the county enjoy adequate water resources,” said Jeff Hauff, Hays County grants administrator. “We need our citizens to help us identify the issues and resources county-wide as the plan takes shape.”

An introduction to the planning process and the effect a plan could have on the public’s water and wastewater services is set for Wednesday, April 15, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., at the Wimberley Community Center, 14068 Ranch Road 12. Two additional meetings are expected before final recommendations are made to the Court. The firm of HDR Engineering, Inc. has been selected by the County to conduct the study, which is supported in part by a grant from the Texas Water Development Board and partnerships with several communities and water suppliers.
