The League of Independent Voters is calling two special and urgent meetings. One for Bastrop County and one for Lee County:
This Saturday, Oct. 18, 2 pm-3:30 pm, at the Bastrop Library (1100 Church Street, Bastrop).
Next Tuesday evening, Oct. 21, 6:30-8 pm, at the Giddings Library, 276 N Orange Street.
Please pass this along and bring your neighbors!
San Antonio Water System (SAWS) may be pulling a fast one. Tomorrow, SAWS is calling a special meeting of their own to “tweak” the $3.4 billion Vista Ridge contract they already signed! Remember, the Vista Ridge project involves a 142-mile pipeline to move 50,000 acre-feet per year of groundwater from our area aquifer (the Simsboro formation of the Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer) in Burleson County to San Antonio! That portion of the Simsboro only recharges by 2,000 acre-feet-year, according a UT study in 2012.
