Board Sets Contested Hearing for Forestar, End Op and LCRA

Hearingphoto-1_2Here are the results of the meetings held over the last two nights.  We had an overflow crowd at the Wednesday meeting which delayed the start of the hearing for about 20 minutes; we estimate 200-300 people showed up to comment.  Lines of people were able to que up for comments and the combined hearing and board meeting lasted until about 10:30 p.m.   The End Op Hearing on Thursday had very good citizen attendance – likely another 200-300 people – and lasted 3 1/2 hours.  During the Board deliberations after the hearing we learned that Aqua Water Supply Corporation is also contesting the End Op permit application.

The Board of Directors  has HEARD THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.  Both Judges were at the Wednesday night meetings … THANK YOU JUDGES PAPE and FISCHER.
THE BEST VOICE OF THE PEOPLE … IS THE FACE AND TESTIMONY OF THE PEOPLE.

 

THANK YOU FOR SHOWING UP and COMMENTING!

 

LOST PINES GROUNDWATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT approved the Manville  application for 3226 acre-feet/year.  We believe that is an appropriate result since the level of pumping is within the range of the Desired Future Conditions (DFC) and the Modeled Available Groundwater (MAG).

Aqua Water Corporation has requested a contested case hearing to allow them to present evidence that the Forestar, End OP, and LCRA applications will harm their existing permitted wells.  These permit applications are FAR IN EXCESS of the DFC and MAG and need to be opposed.  This is a very important development.  The preliminary hearing will be held just prior to the regularly scheduled Board meeting:
