Groundwater Management Area 2 (GMA 2) is one of 16 groundwater management areas in Texas. It covers a large portion of the South Plains region of Texas.
The process of adopting a Desired Future Condition (DFC) was established by the Texas Legislature in 2005 and requires groundwater conservation districts within their respective GMA to establish DFCs for relevant aquifers at least once every five years.
Texas Water Code § 35.001 states that groundwater management areas may be created “to provide for the conservation, preservation, protection, recharging, and prevention of water of the groundwater, and of groundwater reservoirs or their subdivisions.”

The Desired Future Conditions (DFC) process is a vital part of the state’s overall water planning.
