We all know that water profiteers have had their eyes on the Simsboro formation of the Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer, underlying Bastrop and Lee counties, for some time now. (Make sure you’ve read our media release here.)

Please come to these two urgently important meetings — the Independent Texans strategy meeting in Giddings on Monday, April 8th, 6 pm, Giddings Library (map here) — AND the hearing in Giddings on Wednesday, April 17th, 6 pm, Giddings City Hall (map here) — bring a lawn chair!
Your Action Plan: 1. Come to both meetings/invite your neighbors, 2. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper, including the Austin American-Statesman, 3. Spread the word!

Independent Texans will lay out for you, at the April 8th meeting, a number of options for fighting this. Therefore, this meeting is critical to success on the 17th.
As we have said, we all need water. Robbing Peter to pay Paul is madness.
