A bill to study how to create a “statewide marketing and conveyance grid” for water is moving through the Texas Legislature quickly, and we need your help to stop it!
In practical terms, this approach will mean taking more water from rural areas to supply urban centers. But average residential water usage ranges from 60 gallons to over 300 gallons per person per day in different cities in Texas.
Are perfect green lawns important enough to drain aquifers and destroy the future of rural communities and local food?
Ultimately, this approach hurts us all, by fueling unsustainable growth and using up the water resources we all need.
