County to kick in $5 million for Dahlstrom conservation easement

The Hays County Commissioners agreed in principal Tuesday to spend nearly $5 million to conserve 2,200 acres near FM 1626 and RM 967, reducing the potential for a future traffic nightmare while preserving water supplies for 56,000 Hays County residents who use the Barton Springs portion of the Edwards Aquifer as their sole source of water.
