Bastrop/Lee County Water War Escalates Again!

It appears that the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District, at their regular monthly meeting next Wednesday, will have to address a request for reconsideration (and possibly more) of the 45,000-acre feet/year permit requested by Forestar Real Estate Group.  Remember, the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District granted Forestar 12,000-acre feet instead of the 45,000 they requested.  Though many of us thought 12,000 acre-feet was probably too generous, we also fully understood why the board did what they did, and they were and are heroes for doing so.

It also appears that this is not enough for Forestar and they are — at the very least — trying to preserve their right to sue Lost Pines GCD.

We’ll see more on Wednesday night at 7 pm at Bastrop City Hall.  Be there and bring friends!

Please comment below answering these two questions:

1.  Can you attend on Wednesday — 7 pm, Bastrop City Hall, 1311 Chestnut?  Map here.

2.  Can you bring others, if so, how many?  We want to make sure there’s enough seating inside the building.  (Please ask your local elected officials, business owners and community leaders to be there.)

We’ll be sending out more information before Wednesday, but again, please plan to come and bring others!
