Action Request! Bastrop & Lee County Water Lowdown (pun intended!)

You may not know that although the plan for the 100-mile pipeline to take 71,000,000 gallons per day from the Simsboro Aquifer (a portion of the great Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer) underlying Bastrop and Lee counties is on hold, there is now a total of 131,000,000 gallons per day in permit applications (106,000,000 of which are for export) coming to a vote next week by the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District.

The approval or rejection of these permit applications starts a week from today, on Wednesday, March 20th, 7 pm at Bastrop City Hall at a meeting of the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District (LPGCD).  EndOp’s (Frankie Limmer’s company) request for a 56,000,000 gallons per day permit will be addressed at the April 17th meeting of the LPGCD in Giddings at Giddings City Hall.

Therefore, we hope you will use the email box below to send a letter directly to the LPGCD and your reps in the Texas legislature (you can add your own comments in the box just above our suggesgted letter but please be polite and speak to your own concerns and experiences with water) AND/OR call LPGCD at 512-360-5088 AND PLEASE SHOW UP at the LPGCD meeting NEXT Wednesday, March 20th, at 7 pm at Bastrop City Hall (1311 Chestnut map here).

The message below will be sent to the LPGCD’s Board, your State Representative Tim Kleinschmidt and both State Senators for our area, Senator Kirk Watson for Bastrop and Senator Glenn Hegar for Lee County.

[emailpetition id=”4″]  (Note: You can add your own words — tell these folks your specific concerns about your water.)

Here’s LPCGD’s phone number, if you prefer to simply call them:  512-360-5088

Again, we hope to SEE you at Bastrop City Hall on March 20th!
