On the road to protect our water and wallets!
I about to hit the road to this event in Wimberley at 6 pm hoping to unite us to stop the water grabs!
Don’t forget the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance Conference this coming Monday and Tuesday at the Bastrop Convention Center. Our own Michele Gangnes and Steve Box (Environmental Stewardship) are on the water panel on Tuesday morning. At least come to the movie on Monday night! Details here.
Last night, the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District sent the End Op permit back to SOAH (State Office of Administrative Hearings) for clarification before they act on the permit.We support their decision — to be conservative and cautious. (Unfortunately, they also denied several landowners a voice in the battle with End Op LP’s permit request for 46,000 acre-feet of groundwater. Stay tuned on this.)
We remind you that San Antonio Water Systems (SAWS) is back again through their allies in Milam and Burleson counties working a deal for 50,000 acre-feet per year from the same aquifer. We are finding Burleson and Milam landowners and residents who are not hot-to-trot on this deal either!
We hereby throw down the gauntlet to unite the region, including San Antonio, to protect ratepayers and all of our aquifers.
Please plan to join us on October 2nd in San Antonio.
You can even catch a bus — details here and please share it!
