Dear Friends of SAWDF,
We have experienced some monumental turns in the “water wars” in the last few years. Every mega-project to export our water elsewhere, strengthens the resolve we had in founding this organization.
The truth is, there are many organizations in Central Texas whose work involves preserving our water resources. What the leaders and supporters of those organizations came to realize is that education and advocacy (locally and at the Legislature) are important --- and SAWDF lends its voice.
We also realize we need resources. We must take action to prevent the mining of our groundwater to depletion, and instead ensure the sustainability of our aquifers. We must protect landowner's property rights, as a means of empowering them to steward our groundwater.
The battle has moved into the courts with the End Op permit; we expect future permit applications, like the LCRA pending permit, may do the same. The continuing battle is in the Texas Legislature, where growth and development overrides conservation of natural resources, namely our groundwater!
We must advocate changes in groundwater policy to protect aquifers, rural communities and private property rights.
We must avoid an erosion of the people’s voice.
We want a seat at the table when others appropriate our water.
All of this takes money, volunteers and hard work. We encourage you and your families to get involved and stay involved in these issues.
Please contribute financially, talk to your neighbors and contact us to lend a hand.
Thank you so much!
The SAWDF Board
