In need of Hays County stories

The day has come. Water marketers are set to grab water underlying Bastrop and Lee counties, just like they’re doing in “growth corridor” counties near IH-35. The difference is that our groundwater district is the best in the state. Their last stand is at a meeting of the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District, 6 p.m. April 17 at Giddings City Hall.

We are writing to invite Hays County residents to come and tell them your story.

Lee County, a vulnerable rural county will be adversely affected.

LPGCD is the best district in the state.  But can we expect them to stand up to water profiteers who will surely sue LPGCD using the loopholes our state legislators left in the water law they passed in 2011?

Citizens from affected counties – Hays, Travis, Williamson and Bexar, who will receive these water exports – must converge in Giddings. If you’re serious about conservation and private property rights, be there.

If the Lost Pines GCD stands tall, we can promise you at least one thing. It will be game on – especially with the legislature in session.  Folks, be ready!

It’s not too late, but it will soon be.
