Reminder: Cedar Creek, Rockne, Red Rock residents!

If you are a Bastrop County resident who lives in Cedar Creek, Red Rock or Scan 7Rockne, you might not want to miss this meeting to discuss the plans to dump sewage sludge on 2,000 acres between FM 535, and Highways 20 & 21. (Click on the map for the full flier you can share).

Community Meeting
Tuesday, June 28, 6:30 to 8 pm
VFW Hall, Rockne
1503 FM 20

This is an informational meeting organized by Independent Texans, not the TCEQ. That public meeting will come later — likely sometime in the next two months and was requested by State Representative Cyrier and State Senator Watson.

Tomorrow, we will give you the information we have gathered, our own opinions about it (and we are not experts, just concerned citizens) and Rep. Cyrier will lay out the process at TCEQ to make sure you know your rights.

Please feel free to invite area residents and to call us if you need more information before this meeting.

P.S. We could use some help at about 6 pm with set up or help at the end breaking down. Thanks all!

BASTROP ALERT: Austin sludge may wind up in Cedar Creek

Message from Bastrop County: Don't Sludge Us, Austin

A company is trying to get a permit to dump Austin’s sludge on 2,000 acres in the Cedar Creek flood plain. Send a message: Don’t Sludge Us, Austin!

Update!  Make sure to attend a meeting about this being held on Tuesday, June 28th, 6:30-8 pm at the VFW, 1503 Highway 20, Rockne, Texas — especially if you live in Rockne, Red Rock or Cedar Creek. Spread the word!

Did you see this in the Statesman about the plan to dump sludge in the flood plain of the Colorado River? This company just pulled out of Fayette County (due to citizen opposition) but they still have a permit application on file with the TCEQ to dump in Cedar Creek (Bastrop County).

This map might be a better copy for you.

Rep. John Cyrier and Sen. Kirk Watson have asked Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a meeting for citizens to discuss the plan by Denali Water Solutions to dump treated sewage sludge (biosolids) from Austin’s Hornsby Bend on over 2000 acres of land in Bastrop County in the Cedar Creek floodplain.

It is VERY important that you post a request NOW yourself to the TCEQ to hold a public meeting on this subject and that you oppose it.

Simply request a public MEETING and tell them you oppose this or are concerned about it to the TCEQ at: (Note: be sure to use the permit number WQ0005197000).

Electronically (it’s faster) at: www14.tceq.texas.gov/epic/eComment/

Or via regular mail to:

Office of the Chief Clerk, MC 105

PPS More on the water front next week — that is the plan by water marketing companies to take water out from underneath Bastrop, Lee, Milam and Burleson counties to the I-35 growth corridor. This week’s hearing went fine and Lost Pines took no action….yet.
