We have a hearing! August 12, 10 a.m., Bastrop Convention Center — y’all Bastrop and Lee County Folks Come!

eminent domain Independent Texans Water

Remember when Aqua Water Supply filed a “contested case” challenge to the groundwater permit for 56,000 acre feet/year by EndOp, LC?  Remember when a number of landowners in Bastrop and Lee counties, as well as Environmental Stewardship, asked the Lost Pines Groundwater District Board to allow them a voice in these proceedings?

         That’s what the hearing is about on Monday, August 12, 10 am at the Bastrop Convention Center.

We need YOU there, along with your family, friends and neighbors.

The Lost Pines Water Defense Fund is also raising approximately $1200-1500 to pay for an expert witness to explain to the Administrative Hearing Officer presiding at this hearing why these landowners will be adversely affected if this permit is given.

         These landowners are a voice for the rest of us.  

If you can give to the fund — whatever your means are — please do!

Checks are made out to the Lost Pines Water Defense Fund and mailed to PO Box 690, Elgin, TX 78621.  More about the fund below.

  1. If I were to guess the water from Bastrop and surrounding counties is going to San Antonio. Forestar is famous for shall we say not telling the whole truth. They manage HOA’s in 2 communities in Bastrop and believe me those communities want rid of Forestar.

    The solution to water is stop all municipalities from hooking up meters until the water problems are solved. Oh, I know, the local governments are drunk on property taxes and want more homes and commercial. So folks just wait, the water bill will be bigger than the electric bill soon.
