The Vista Ridge Community Meetings are information, education and organizing sessions to tell people what they are not getting from those officials who are pushing a massive water grab in Burleson County, aka the $3.4 billion, 142-mile pipeline called Vista Ridge. Vista Ridge is set to start in 2019 and, if it's built, will drain the Simsboro formation of the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer. Vista Ridge water will be used to build out over the Edwards Aquifer between Austin and San Antonio, and therefore will put the Edwards Aquifer at risk of further pollution. What's more, this water grab will push even more unbridled growth in central Texas -- the key driver of unaffordability. (Click on the map and you'll see a better map.)
