Did you know that in times of drought the Blanco River in Hays County provides flow to Barton Springs? And much of the Blanco's flow comes from the Trinity Aquifer. You can read more about the hydrogeological study here.
The Trinity Aquifer is already declining, which means that during times of drought flow at Barton Springs could also decline.
More and more groundwater will be pumped from the Trinity Aquifer in the future as groundwater developers have targeted the Trinity as a source of water supply.
TESPA is committed to ensuring that the State and local groundwater districts do not overlook their Constitutional duty to protect the Trinity Aquifer in the face of pressure to develop groundwater resources.
If you care about Barton Springs, please consider making a donation to the Trinity Edwards Springs Protection Association. TESPA is the only organization taking legal action to protect the Trinity Aquifer from over pumping.
