The undersigned asks that the State of Texas increase their oversight and control of the management of water from the Medina River and Medina Lake water shed through the following actions:

  • Change Texas Water Code Law to make Drought Contingency and Water Conservation Plans enforceable.
  • Establish a conservation level at 50% of the total capacity of the lake which will secure recharge of the Edwards Aquifer.
  • Bring an end to municipal water users in San Antonio subsidizing the (Bexar Medina Atascosa Water Control and Improvement District #1) BMA.
  • Replace BMA with a River Authority with professionally skilled personnel, tools/equipment and that know how to manage and operate Medina Lake and its dam to the benefit of all stakeholders.
  • Put BMA under Sunset Review.
  • Ensure qualified farmers in BMA’s district obtain water permits for wells, as needed, thereby securing water for irrigation also during drought conditions.
  • Change BMA’s enabling act to require representation of all interests on their board.
