High Plains Underground Water District Schedules Public Hearing Date

HPWD No.1 Map (

The High Plains Underground Water Conservation District Board of Directors has scheduled a public hearing for comments on proposed rule amendments.

The November 12th public hearing will allow citizens to make comments on proposed rule amendments to extend the district’s current moratoriums through December 31st, 2013.

The Board is also considering amendments to rules relating to the district’s water well permit process.

Board President Lynn Tate of Amarillo said that the board believes that extending the moratoriums “is prudent since it gives additional time to review and make possible revisions to Rule 5, relating to implementation of the district’s 50/50 management goal and groundwater production limitations.”

Other amendments are also being considered as well. You can view those proposed amendments at

The public hearing will take place at 9:30 a.m. at the A. Wayne Wyatt Board Room of the HPWD office, located at 29th Street and Avenue Q.

Comments are accepted in person or in writing at the hearing.
