Texas Water Code
Sec. § 65.020


If the commission determines that a hearing is necessary under Section 49.011 (Notice Applicable to Creation of a District by the Commission), the commission shall conduct a hearing and accept evidence on the sufficiency of the resolution and whether or not the request for conversion for each purpose specified in the resolution, as required by Section 65.015 (Contents of Resolution), is feasible and practicable and is necessary and would be a benefit to all or any part of the land proposed to be included in the district. The commission may only consider a purpose for which the district is being created that is specified in the resolution.


The commission has jurisdiction to determine all issues on the sufficiency of the resolution and the creation of the district.


The hearing may be adjourned from day to day, and the commission may make all incidental orders necessary with respect to the matters before it.
