Recharge is READY to partner with communities so we can tap into our extensive water resources.
Texas, and the Austin region in particular, is experiencing unprecedented population growth. In fact, the 2017 State Water Plan said that population in Texas is expected to increase 73 percent between 2020 and 2070, from 29.51 million to 51 million people.
Fortunately, available groundwater is plentiful in our region, with millions of acre feet under Bastrop, Lee, Burleson and Milam Counties. In September 2016 the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District Board voted 7-1 to approve Recharge's groundwater permits. The permits provide Recharge with the right to produce and export up to 46,000 acre feet per year from the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer, located in in Lee & Bastrop Counties.
Recharge is dedicated to working with communities to ensure RELIABLE water resources for generations to come.
Central Texas is too heavily dependent on one major water resource. By diversifying our supply sources by tapping into the vast amount of available groundwater in our region we can help alleviate our water concerns.
Recharge is committed to working with Central Texas communities to ensure RESPONSIBLE water development in the region including proper land mitigation, economic benefits, and environmental stewardship.
Central Texas has strong oversight in place to ensure groundwater is properly managed and dispersed. By working with all interested parties, Recharge is building community partnerships that will ensure the vast, available water supply is able to be utilized efficiently and responsibly to continue to recharge our economy and meet the needs of future generations.
