The Supreme Court in February of 2012 reaffirmed you own the groundwater under your land and it cannot be regulated away from your use without compensation. They also must first prove a need for regulation. The HPWD has not proven a need for pumping restrictions. A Texas Tech University and other university and independent studies have shown the aquifer to be self regulating and will accomplish more than the 50/50 desired future condition without pumping restrictions.
