    "The South Central Texas Regional Water Planning Group, better known as Region L, develops five-year plans that protect water resources now and in the future."

    "The planning process is designed to ensure enough water for families, businesses and farmers even as the population grows. Protecting the public, economy and natural resources are guiding principles behind these plans."

    I don't think many people really understand what's happenning with our water situation. The aquifer levels are dropping. According to one of the Goliad County Groundwater Conservation District members, a six-year ongoing water level testing program indicates that some water wells have dropped in level as much as 7 1/2 feet in the last six years.

    Kevin Janak truly cares about his constituents and has a clear understanding of what is in front of us. The population is growing here, industry is moving in but the water supply is diminishing.

    Kevin, you go man! It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it...might as well be you.
