Lawyers for Environmental Stewardship and Landowners will make oral arguments before the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District Board of Directors on August 13, 7:00 p.m. at the Bastrop Convention Center. ES and Landowners are requesting that the decision by the ALJ to deny party status be reversed and remanded back to SOAH for contested case hearing.
The public is encouraged to attend. Though public comments will not be heard, the face of the people needs to be seen. This is a very important hearing about your rights to defend your interests in the groundwater beneath your land.
Since our filing on August 1st, End Op has filed a reply to our request to reverse the decision to deny ES and Landowners party status in the contested case hearing. Counsel for the Landowners has also filed an amicus brief regarding the Landowner’s request. See previous post below for more details.
