Page 6C BBIMUIOP~ Hays Free Press • May 4, 2011 + STAFF REPORTS Few people realize how important access to water is to the growth and vitality of a city and county. Former San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz is one of those few and the agency she helped start has recognized her for her efforts. The agency's board of directors joined David Wilson, current chair of the PUA and a Kyle city council member, in presenting Narvaiz a plaque acknowledging her leadership as the agency's first chairperson and for her vision and leadership. "The Hays/Caldwell Public Utility Agency is going to change the way water is delivered to central Texas and ensure that our community's water needs are adequately met well into the future," Wilson said. "Susan Narvaiz has played an essential role in the development of this agency and we wouldn't be here talking about it today without her leadership." Narvalz was the first chairperson of the agency that was founded in 2007 and includes the cities of Kyle, San Marcos and Buda, along with the Canyon Regional Water Authority. She was instrumental in helping form the com- mittee and in obtaining the political support from the charter members to make the agency a reality. "It has been my honor to serve as chair of the HCPUA and work with such a committed group of leaders to provide a real solution to secure a long term water supply to the people we serve," Narvaiz said. "I encourage you all to continue this collaborative work, be open to new options that might become available, be willing to review your current plan and to change your course to achieve the best, af- fordable water supply plan. I believe that the HCPUA can and will play a pivotal role in pro- viding water solutions for those we represent and indeed all of Central Texas. I am leaving the HCPUA lit good hands and we are counting on you." The first public utility agency in Texas, HCPUA's objective is to supplement the current water supplies of the agency's participants by adding groundwater from the Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer for future water needs. The Carrizo- Wilcox aquifer is a water formation in East Texas that makes up part of the larger Texas Coastal Uplands Aquifer System. It extends from the Rio Grande in South Texas and into parts of Arkansas and Louisiana, supplying water to 60 Texas counties. The agency plans to bring 10 million gallons a day to the Kyle, Buda and San Marcos area by 2018. The amount of water delivered is expect- ed to reach 20 million gallons a day by 2032.

The agency is in the process of buying Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer water rights as a future source of water for the cities of San Marcos, Kyle and Buda as well as the Canyon Regional Water Supply. "She is a major player" in central Texas water issues, Wilson said.
