With SAWS rate hikes out of control for the unnecessary $3.4B Vista Ridge pipeline project, now the majority San Antonio City Council seeks to destabilize protections of the mighty Edwards aquifer -- the source of San Antonio's drinking water.
Isn't it time for the San Antonio City Council to stop shirking their responsibility to provide proper oversight of SAWS?
The SAWS Accountability act, if passed by San Antonio voters, will: • ratchet back Puente's outrageous pay ($600K per year!) • set firm term limits on SAWS leadership • rein in SAWS lobbying to become water brokers of central Texas off rate payer's backs • secure an audit of Vista Ridge AND audits of any $1 billion or more projects BEFORE contracts are signed.
Don't forget to read and print both pages of the petition and carefully read the Petition Instructions!
