A study by respected hydrologist George Rice was released a few hours ago. Rice
explains just how dangerous Vista Ridge pumping will be to the aquifer in the Post Oak and Lost Pines districts -- affecting hundreds of thousands who rely on the aquifer.
We will be leaving at least 200-450 foot drawdowns the next generation. The study was sponsored by a host of organizations on the front lines of the central Texas water wars from across the Vista Ridge pipeline. It's that rural -urban alliance at it again!
