Aquifer Science Research
At the core of the Edwards Aquifer Authority is the science and research we engage in daily. This work provides us with the basis for understanding and insights that are vitally necessarily in planning the future well-being of the Edwards Aquifer. Some of the opportunities in hardware that currently present themselves are in monitoring/research equipment & computer systems and weather stations.
Edwards Aquifer Conservation
The Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) requires certain groundwater withdrawal permit holders to develop and implement individual groundwater conservation plans. In addition, the EAA promotes water efficiency through the implementation of a regional groundwater conservation plan (GCP) and its water conservation programs. Through these plans permit holders are required to achieve year-round conservation through the implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs). Conserving groundwater is important to the effective management and sustainability of the Edwards Aquifer.
Education Outreach Center
The $3 million EAA Education Outreach Center encompasses 3,500 square feet and features unique learning experiences that challenge the imagination! Open to the public and free of charge, the EAA Education Outreach Center provides a platform to educate young and old alike!
Field Research Park & Observatory
The Edwards Aquifer Conservancy was formally granted the deeds to 150+ acres of land known as the Cibolo Vista Tracts 1 and 2 by the San Antonio City Council. The property, located just north of the soon-to-be-constructed Morgan’s Wonderland Camp, represents a $5.5 million gift to the Conservancy – the largest gift received to date.
