    Enlarge this map to see what's at stake with the Vista Ridge project!

    But we also need you to take action!

    Please be informed and get involved ~~and join with "WaterDefendersDOTorg" (waterdefenders.org), SAWDF's coalition with Environmental Stewardship (the guardian of the Colorado River system), in an important effort for Sustainable Water for Texas, Uniting Our Land, Our Water, and Our Community.


    We all must act to assure our aquifers, and our rivers, streams, and springs, get the protection they need for their sustainability in the face of unprecedented demands on our aquifers, by mega-export groundwater projects in the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer.


    Our resources are supporting growth elsewhere, while our communities, our land, and our waters -- both ground and surface --- are put at even greater risk than ever before. Go here for waterdefenders.org




    Whether you have a well or not, those of you who own land and groundwater over the central Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer and those of you who also seek to have resilient and healthy aquifers, that in turn support a sustainable water supply ---  a water supply that will last beyond our needs, and will supply our kids and future generations ----please stand ready to help US, help YOU during Summer 2021. 


    All of the required groundwater district hearings on the "proposed Desired Future Conditions", have now been held in Groundwater Management Area 12 (GMA-12)--- and you raised your voices locally to ask the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District to vote to reject the proposed GMA-12 Desired Future Conditions. Thank you all for submitting your comments. Go here to read our NEWS blog articles about the proposed Desired Future Conditions.
