Meeting in Lockhart will examine wastewater issues

Staff Reports

Staggering growth isn’t limited to Hays County. Big projects are underway next door in Caldwell County too, and as farms and ranches give way to housing developments, concepts like “smart growth” and “sustainable land management” come to the fore.

To help residents keep up with what’s coming and how to deal with it, the Plum Creek Watershed Partnership will hold a meeting at 6 p.m. on Feb. 9 at the Lockhart State Park Recreation Hall.

Dinner will be provided free, courtesy of the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA).
