Water Conservation Areas

The Long Water Technology Farm is one of 24 consent agreements that make up the Wichita County Water Conservation Area (WCWCA).  Matt Long was one of the 10 original members that came together in 2016 to form the WCWCA, with the purpose of sustaining their community by conserving their groundwater resources.  The goal of the group is to achieve a 50% reduction in water use by 2038 in four steps of 7 year terms.  The Technology Farm is still in the initial 7 year period which includes a 29% reduction in water use.

A copy of the Plan is provided in the following link: Management Plan for the Designation of a WCA.  The WCWCA was designated and established in Wichita County on March 7th, 2017.
