There is now a website designed to help local residents better understand land and water resources issues affecting the Texas Hill Country.
The South Llano Watershed Alliance website, southllano.org, provides news and information on water and land stewardship issues in the Llano River basin, and provides links to some of the latest scientific studies on these complex issues.
The mission of the Alliance is to “encourage land and water stewardship in order to preserve and enhance the South Llano River and other tributaries to the Llano,” said Walter Curry, President of the Alliance and a resident of Junction. This website is a resource to promote good stewardship through collaboration, education, and community participation, explained Curry.
The South Llano Watershed Alliance website provides links to stream gauge data, drought maps, water-well data, and tips on water conservation. The website also provides information on upcoming activities, including the next Alliance meeting on August 20th at the Tech Center in Junction. This meeting is open to the public and will focus on current issues related to local groundwater districts, as well as provide information on the use of prescribed burning to enhance rangeland grasses and potentially improve flows in area rivers and streams.
