This document was generated to provide a summary of technical information to the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) in support of determining the drought Managed Available Groundwater (MAG) needed to achieve the drought Desired Future Condition (DFC) as stated below. The best available information for determining the drought MAG, based on parametric assessment of numerical modeling results, suggests that a nearly one-to-one relationship exists between pumping and springflow under low-flow conditions. The District's current management plan and rules utilize this simple water budget approach that reflects this understanding.
