The mission of the Kimble County Groundwater Conservation District is to develop, promote, and implement water conservation and water management strategies to conserve, preserve, and protect the groundwater supplies of the District, to protect and enhance recharge, prevent waste and pollution, and to effect efficient use of groundwater. The District seeks to protect the owners of water rights within the District from impairment of their groundwater quality and quantity, pursuant to the powers and duties granted under Chapter 36, Subchapter D of the Texas Water Code.
The enabling legislation creating the District, Senate Bill 2, was passed during the 77th Regular Legislative Session (2001). The confirmation election was held on May 4, 2002 with the majority of the votes cast in favor of confirming the creation of the District. On the same ballot the proposition authorizing the District to levy taxes and setting the maximum tax rate at twenty cents ($.20) per $100 ad valorem value was passed.
