Those of us who have property valued because we have access to a flowing river just got screwed so developers can reap profits. That is a very depressing decision.

Hopefully this decision will be appealed and developers shouldn't be so short sighted not to realize the Hill Country without flowing creeks and rivers will not be prime property.

One sure way to preserve our water is for the County to require that all new construction, residential & commercial, have water catchment systems. Of course, the County Commissioners might not want to put such restrictions on developers & contractors.

Sounds good but there still needs to be a restriction on any new building as that water being caught would normally go into the aquifers.

You assume developers use enlightened self interest to guide their decisions rather than simple greed.
