The High Plains Underground Water Conservation District has approved extending a groundwater reporting deadline.

The HPWD Board of Directors unanimously approved rule amendments allowing an extension of the reporting deadline for groundwater produced during 2012.

The production reporting deadline has been extended until June 1st, 2013, due to problems with the district’s meter reporting website.

The original production reports deadline for calendar year 2012 was March 1st, 2013.

The rule amendments allowing the extension came after a February 19th public hearing, where two people spoke in favor of the extension.
