Citizens Picket Annual Growth Summit
This Friday, landowners and residents from the IH-35 growth corridor and the “forced water donor” communities east of Austin, will picket the Annual Growth Summit being held at the Embassy Suites in San Marcos. The picket comes on the heels of permits granted for over 124,000 acre-feet of groundwater (more than 110 million gallons per day) from the endangered slow-recharging Simsboro formation of the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer underlying Bastrop, Burleson, Lee and Milam counties. Those permits are now:
⇒Vista Ridge/”The San Antone Hose” 50,000 AFY
⇒Forestar Real Estate Group: 28,500 AFY
⇒End Op, L.P. 46,000 AFY
Picketers will have plenty to say about why citizens from rural, suburban and urban Texas are joining hands to fight the “growth machine”. They will be carrying signs like the one in this advisory to tell their story.
More here on the Picket at the Growth Summit–Please come!
We encourage media to join us outside and across the street from the Embassy Suites at 12 pm or to call us.
