The District was created by the Citizens of Hardeman and Foard Counties through election on February 1, 2001. The original name of the District was Tri-county Groundwater Conservation District, because the District anticipated including at least part of Wilbarger County in the future. Since that time, the citizens of Childress and Cottle Counties have elected to join the District, and the new name of Gateway Groundwater Conservation District was adopted. Motley County joined the District after approval in an election on November 3, 2009. King County joined the district after approval in an election on November 6, 2018. Development and certification of Management Plans for groundwater conservation districts is required by Texas Law.
Gateway GCD Board of Directors updated the Rules in January 2017. Click below to review.
