Landowners won a round in court on October 18, facing off End Op's (now "Recharge") water grabbing siege on the Simsboro in Lee & Bastrop counties.
The San Antone Vista Ridge Hose, on the other side of the same Simsboro aquifer, continues to lay pipe despite the financing nightmare unfolding on SAWS ratepayers and continued opposition by landowners in Burleson and Milam counties.
We don't often ask you for money, and when we do, it's rarely for the benefit of the League of Independent Voters.
We hereby request that you give a tax-deductible contribution to the Simsboro Aquifer Water Defense Fund. SAWDF is providing critical financial support to keep the legal team working on the End Op case and to empower landowners who want to conserve and protect their groundwater and our aquifers.
It's tax-deductible AND it's matchable up to $10,000!

Thanks to the Alamo Torch, these two volatile articles below are reaching SAWS ratepayers as we write -- urging them to call San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg and their council member at 210.207.7040 before the Council votes on SAWS water rate hikes on November 9th. Here's the SA Council's webpage.

We have things for you to do -- especially getting on the phone to the good people of San Antonio before November 9th.
Thank you ahead of time for you money, your time or all of the above!
Lots more coming and for generations to come!
PS Watch for some breaking news -- we pray, anyway -- next week!
