The mission of the Brazoria County Groundwater Conservation District (BCGCD) is to maintain the quality and availability of Brazoria County's groundwater resources for current users and future generations.
Groundwater is one of Brazoria County’s most precious resources and represents an important contributor to the county’s water supply. Because it is such a valuable resource, groundwater must be protected to ensure that it will always be available to residential, agricultural, municipal, and industrial water users.
A groundwater conservation district such as the BCGCD plays a key role in protecting groundwater resources. The BCGCD’s five-member board will proactively work with groundwater users in the district to address issues such as how to most efficiently use groundwater, control and prevent waste, control and prevent subsidence, and address drought conditions.
