Victory Rock Texas LLC

c/o Jon Taliaferro


9737 Great Hills Trail, Ste 340

The proposed amendment is for an existing well located at:


Well #1                                                 

Latitude 30.878055º

Longitude -97.609444º



The existing well is completed in the Hosston Layer of the Trinity Aquifer known as the Lower Trinity Aquifer and geographically in the CUWCD Stillhouse Hollow Management Zone.


Well #N2-21-001P is equipped with a 1 ¼ -inch column pipe with a submersible pump rated at 16 gallons per minute on the 283-acre tract located at the 7170 Solana Ranch Rd, Salado, TX 76571.



The current operating permit is to produce groundwater for a defined beneficial use for a dual purpose specifically for dust suppression and mining/crushing aggregates on contiguous tracts of land known as PID: 41910 and PID: 41912 of approximately 283-acres.


Victory Rock Texas LLC is proposing an amendment to the permit to add an additional tract of land PID: 41920 totaling 110.73-acres to their contiguous property leased from Byron Goode. The proposed additional beneficial use is to include a Concrete Batch Plant Facility known as Five Star, Concrete, LLC.


The current operating permit does authorize production of groundwater not to exceed 30-ac-ft (9,775,000 gallons) per year from a well (N2-21-001P) completed in the Hosston Layer of Trinity aquifer. This application does not contemplate any additional groundwater production beyond the current operating amount of 30-ac-ft/year.




The Applications for Permit and Permit Amendments, if granted, would authorize the permit holders to operate wells within the Clearwater Underground Water Conservation District according to the terms and conditions set forth in the permit.  A person wishing to submit a Contested Case Hearing Request under District Rule 6.10.15(d) who is unable to appear at the hearing on the date and time set forth above must also file a motion for continuance with CUWCD demonstrating good cause for the inability to not appear.
