The interactive GIS website will be a new tool available for public use. The hydrologic and environmental data overlaid by the urban layers will help others visualize the effects of a rapidly-growing population on an environmentally sensitive area. This will function as a reference tool for developers, planners, conservationists and informed citizens regarding the changing ecologic environment in the Hill Country.
The DRASTIC model or a derivative thereof will provide a more precise and scientific tool for assessing the groundwater vulnerability of specific areas within the Hill Country, and will assist both developers and planners in choosing the least-vulnerable sites for managing the growth of this region.
