Jacob's Well nature area OK'd
The Hays County Commissioners Court voted Tuesday to pay $2.6 million toward the restoration of a natural area around Jacob's Well, a spring that feeds Cypress Creek.
The money will help the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association, a nonprofit land trust, repay a loan that financed a 2005 purchase of the 55 acres around the Jacob's Well spring, which is possibly the longest underwater cave in Texas.
"Jacob's Well is a regional and statewide natural wonder that is cherished by this community," Patrick Cox, president of the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association, said.
The Jacob's Well area could open early next year to the public, Cox said.
