The District is funded through fees that are authorized in its enabling legislation.
Through a system of well spacing rules, minimum tract size requirements, and the District's Desired Future Conditions, the competition between wells is reduced.
All wells drilled after April 1, 2011, must be registered - those exempt from permitting as well as those subject to permitting.
The District is accountable to its constituents, elected officials, and regulatory agencies.
The Prairielands GCD seeks to balance the needs of all groundwater users with the requirements of a sustainable aquifer.
Members of the board are appointed by the county commissioners in Ellis, Hill, Johnson, and Somervell counties.
The Prairielands GCD is located in the north prairies of Texas, covering Ellis, Hill, Johnson, and Somervell counties.
The Prairielands GCD was created in response to a finding by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that groundwater shortages were expected in Ellis, Hill, Johnson, and Somervell counties over the next 25 years.
