The Red Sands Groundwater Conservation District (“District”) was created in 1999 by the 79th Texas Legislature with the enactment of Senate Bill 1911. The creation of the District was confirmed by the citizens located within the District’s boundaries in Hidalgo County at an election held on November 2002. Beyond its enabling legislation, the District is governed primarily by the provisions of Chapter 36 of the Texas Water Code, the District’s Management Plan, and the District Rules.
Local GCDs (also known as “districts”) are the state’s preferred method of groundwater management. GCDs manage groundwater by providing for the conservation and protection, preservation for the future, and prevention of waste of groundwater resources within each district.
