LUBBOCK--(October 22, 2012)--Want to know more about the High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1? If so, be sure to visit the district's redesigned web site at www.hpwd.com.
The site provides detailed information about various HPWD programs and activities, such as agricultural and urban water conservation tips, proper closure of open, abandoned water wells, water well permits, tailwater abatement, hydrologic atlases, cost-in-water income tax depletion allowance, and water conservation education.
Other links offer information about district rules, district meter requirements and approved meter list, the Ogallala Aquifer, as well as news and upcoming meetings.
The revised site will also allow persons to sign up for an e-mail list to receive the latest news and information from the district.
"The new site provides a cleaner, fresher look with easier access to information about the district's programs and activities," said Carmon McCain, information/education group supervisor. "The previous site had gotten cluttered since the last major makeover. As with any new site, there are updates to be made and glitches to work out. We appreciate the public's patience as we continue the process of bringing the redesigned HPWD web site on line," he said.
Created in 1951 by local residents and the State Legislature, the High Plains Underground Water Conservation District is charged with the responsibility of conserving, preserving, protecting, and preventing waste of groundwater within its 16-county service area.
