Bobby Bazan, Post Oak Savannah Groundwater Conservation District Water Resource Management Specialist, is giving an update on the POSGCD Well Monitoring Network at this year’s Summit. Bazan has been with Post Oak Savannah GCD four years. He has received a B.S. in Agricultural Systems Management and a M.S. in Water Management, both from Texas A&M University.
Prior to coming to Post Oak Savannah GCD, he was a hydrologist with the U.S. Forest Service – Rocky Mountain Research Station in Fort Collins, CO.
During his presentation, Bazan will review the advances POSGCD has made to the Monitoring Well Network, such as the addition of new wells, an increase in frequency of measurements and new web-based features that the District is excited about.
“The monitoring network and its water level measurements are crucial to the District’s mission to protect and conserve aquifer resources in Burleson and Milam Counties by providing critical scientific data,” Bazan said. “That ‘best available science’ allows for the Board to make decisions in evaluating the District’s Management Plan and Rules.”
