THE MIDDLE PECOS GROUNDWATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT ADOPTED A TAX RATE THAT WILL RAISE MORE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS THAN LAST YEAR’S TAX RATE.
THE TAX RATE WILL EFFECTIVELY BE RAISED BY 7.79 PERCENT AND WILL RAISE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS ON A $100,000 HOME BY APPROXIMATELY $-0-.
Our mission is to develop and implement an efficient, economical and environmentally sound groundwater management program to protect and maintain historical aquifer levels and enhance the water resources of the District, and to communicate and administer to the needs and concerns of the citizens of Pecos County.
In keeping an eye on Pecos County water levels we monitor over 100+ wells that are scattered throughout Pecos County. We also conduct water analysis from all over the County. Our Board meetings are normally held the third Tuesday of each month, and everyone is welcome to attend.
We have an 11 member Board of Directors that is elected by the citizens of Pecos County. There are two directors from each precinct, one from the city of Fort Stockton, one from the city of Iraan, and one from Pecos County at large. Elections are held on even numbered years during November.
