San Antonio Water Pipeline watch out! This will drain the Simsboro, help pave over the sensitive aquifers south of Austin, and cost ratepayers big time. Who’s pushing this? San Antonio Water System under the pressure of the real estate lobby — specifically the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce. It’s time to move on this if you don’t want your water grabbed.

ALERT! The location of the Lost Pines Water meeting on Wednesday has changed! It is NOT in Bastrop. It’s in Lee County at the American Legion Hall, 1502 Hwy. 77, in Giddings! There are also new threats to our water we will share via flier for you to take to your neighbors. Show up and do your part and spread the word! Newspapers have the wrong location!

Don’t feel guilty, just read this press release, “Central Texas Landowners Join Forces to Protect Water Supply in the Face of Out-of Control Growth”.

Remember the “T-4” form at the Railroad Commission (RRC) that allows a pipeline company to claim common carrier status by simply checking a box? This is what gave them the power to seize Julia Trigg Crawford’s, David Holland’s and thousands of others’ land — against their will. They’re running tar sands crude over hundreds of East Texas water ways.
