The Aquifer Conservation Alliance has withdrawn its petition for annexation by Clearwater
Underground Water Conservation District of Bell County. Public hearings previously planned for
March 14, March 16, and March 21 are canceled.

Unfortunately circumstances beyond the control of ACA and Clearwater UWCD left our
organization with little choice. This decision was difficult and not without significant
consideration by members of the ACA board.

ACA remains committed to the issues concerning groundwater availability for the citizens of
western Williamson County. We will continue to pursue all avenues available to establish a
groundwater conservation district in order to protect our groundwater now and for the future.

Please visit our website at to sign up for updates. If you have not
already joined us in this effort, please join. The next chapter in our organization begins now.
It is more important than ever that the citizens of western Williamson County make their voices
heard all the way to the Texas Capitol!

Keith Elliston,
Chair, Aquifer Conservation Alliance
