Dear #FIRST_NAME#Friends#: (trouble reading this? click here and share)

Hot off the media wires --- more blood in the water on Vista Ridge!

A study by respected hydrologist George Rice was released a few hours ago. Rice explains just how dangerous Vista Ridge pumping will be to the aquifer in the Post Oak and Lost Pines districts -- affecting hundreds of thousands who rely on the aquifer. We will be leaving at least 200-450 foot drawdowns for the next generation. The study was sponsored by a host of organizations on the front lines of the central Texas water wars from across the Vista Ridge pipeline. It's that rural urban alliance at it again!

We just held excellent events in Lee and Guadalupe counties -- lots of people are picking up on our petition drive. We're now receiving thousands of petition letters to Governor Greg Abbott. Burleson County is leading the way.

If you can come to Dime Box on Saturday, we need volunteers at our booth at the Blackbridge Festival all day. Call us!
