While acknowledging the serious consequences of the drought in Texas, the undersigned hereby express deep concern over the way the water in Medina Lake has been managed and assert the entities managing the gates in Medina Dam must share the responsibility for draining Medina Lake. The undersigned wish to express support for the efforts undertaken by the Save Medina Lake.com committee and urge local communities and the State of Texas to introduce measures ensuring the water will be conserved to the greatest extent possible.

Conservation and responsible management of the gates at the Medina Lake Dam is vital to realizing the importance of the lake for recharging the aquifer, securing water for irrigation and other downstream purposes, supporting fish and wildlife, securing water for firefighting and the local community as well as taking into account the economic and recreational interest associated with Medina Lake.

    I think the sportsmen who use Lake Medina are every bit as important as the farmers who use the water. In fact, lets talk about tax bases and see who should have more rights. The people who live on this lake should count.

    I live in Bandera right off Medina Lake. My wife and I purchased the property in July 2016. When we purchased the property we thought the lakefront home was wonderful and had no idea the lake's water level would drop almost 15' (feet) within a year. Our boat dock is now on land and the property continues to drop in value as water continues to be released despite the heavy rains in recent months. It is said to know so much water is wasted/released simply because the regulations are not in place. I support farmers, however don't believe it is the farmers who are profiting from the lake but instead SAWS.
