Dear #FIRST_NAME#Friends#: click here to view or share this message on the web:

Is it not time for SAWS Accountability and an audit of Vista Ridge?!

In 2014, when the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) and the then City Council, put the bums rush (30 days) on the Vista Ridge water pipeline project, we united across the 142-mile pipeline to urge a careful look at consequences of the Vista Ridge water pipeline. The Council was warned that it could not only do harm to the infinitesimally slow recharging aquifers underlying Burleson County, but also the mighty Edwards Aquifer!

Now here we are today, with SAWS ready to takeover the Edwards Aquifer Protection Program, threatening serious harm to the program and the Edwards.

This coming Sunday a petition drive will kickoff in San Antonio for just that. This is a volunteer drive for which we need many hands and some of your hard-earned dollars.

Live in San Antonio? Come on over to these events!

►TOMORROW, Tuesday, Feb. 18, 6:00 pm, Eco Center, 1802 N. Main. The Alamo Sierra Club hosts Dr. Meredith McGuire, who knows more about SAWS rates related to Vista Ridge than most anyone around. Visit our Event page for details here.

►THIS SUNDAY, February 23, from 2 to 4 pm, at Luby's, 911 N. Main Ave., for the Kickoff of the Petition Drive for a public vote on the SAWS Accountability Act! The flier attached to this message is under this link -- with share buttons. The petition will be live on this page on Sunday, so keep it handy.

Got questions? Reply to this message or give us a call at our San Antonio number: 210.807.7273.

Independently yours, San Antonio!
