What do you do when a critical resource for our present and future generations is endangered? Do you ignore it, sit on your hands, or even help the perpetrators?
This is the essence of what far too many officials have done, so far, about Vista Ridge…aka the San Antone Hose. Vista Ridge, scheduled for pumping in April 2020, is the most imminent threat to the water supply of Texas yet.
It is hosing SAWS ratepayers with unnecessary 52% rate hikes, and taking the rights of the landowners who are supposed to own the groundwater underlying them in Burleson, Milam, Lee and Bastrop counties.
And, believe it or not, these guys are coming back to the overly peremissive Post Oak Savannah Groundwater Conservation District on October 3 for even more water for Vista Ridge!
Just as they are relentless, so must we be. Please join us to prepare for the October 3rd hearing and for other opportunities to fight Vista Ridge, at at this local residents’ and landowner’ meeting:
Can’t make it, this Saturday? Please make plans to come to the October 3rd hearing before the POSGCD Board on this permit amendment. If you have a registered well in Burleson or Milam, you may be able to be recognized as an “affected person” and seek a contested case hearing.
We also recommend you read the cover letter about this issue we sent to area officials. We know some are very sympathetic and want to help. Urge them to reach other state officials, including the Governor. And you do the same.
Thank you for our future generations! Hoping to see you on this coming Saturday, September 21 and on October 3.
