* Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District, 7 pm, Giddings City Hall, 188 Richmond Street. The LCRA keeps coming back — now for the third time! LCRA, a river authority that should be looking out for, protecting, and conserving OUR Colorado River, is turning it’s back on the river, the bay, and its rural customers and neighbors, to satisfy its self-serving desires and urban demands for water. Lost Pines GCD needs to know we’re there — for as long as it takes and as many times as it takes to protect our water.
