Sludge Goes Bye-Bye, Petitions a’ flying’

Yippee!  Late yesterday, Denali Water Solutions withdrew the permit to spread sludge on the Wallace Ranch in Cedar Creek!

Thanks to a great team of very willing affected landowners, local residents, volunteers, and the VFW in Rockne together with elected officials — Judge Paul Pape and the entire Bastrop County Commissioners Court, State Rep. John Cyrier and State Senator Kirk Watson.  We now need your help to spread the word that this is over. Please tell your neighbors in Cedar Creek, Rockne and Red Rock. Read the great news details right here on DontSludgeBastrop.info. We suggest you stay engaged, folks. This area of Bastrop County is slated for continued likely high growth since Austin can’t seem to break the growth lobby-hold wreaking havoc on their affordability.

Bastrop Petition Update! Both petitions are getting traction for 1. establishing fair petition requirements for petititions and 2. recalling Bastrop Mayor Ken Kesselus. BUT due to slowness of mail, please help us reach CITY OF BASTROP VOTERS. The cover letter and petitions are on this page. And yes, despite what the Mayor is saying, we stand by all we have written and there’s more coming.

That’s all for now, folks!

PS Please keep those donations comin’. We need small or large.

PPS Bring us to you to help you wherever you are.

Bastrop Sludge Update

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 9.08.49 PMIt was standing room only at the VFW in Rockne (over 200 people signed in) — VFW, thankfully, donated the hall for this meeting! A rip-roaring debate ensured about ‘what’s in this sludge anyway?’.

The father of the owner of the property, Dalton Wallace, showed up and to his credit faced the crowd. It is our hope that the Wallaces will see that a plan to place Class B biosolids (sewage sludge) near critical water resources and a growing population area of Bastrop County makes no sense.

Many thanks to Rep. John Cyrier for speaking and to Bastrop Judge Paul Pape for attending and listening. More news very soon!

If you live in the area — Cedar Creek, Rockne and Red Rock – make sure you weigh in on this at the TCEQ website with substantive comments about how this affects you. If you’ve already done so, but thought of additional things you want to say, you can comment again.

Go to the home page of DontSludgeBastrop.info.

Content is being added daily, with the help of many of you sending information. A steering committee meeting will be called very soon.
