Stop the Vista Ridge Pipeline

The City of San Antonio has inked a contract to pipe up to 16.3 billion gallons of water per year for 30 years from rural Texas. The project will burden the city’s ratepayers with an estimated $3.4 billion price-tag for water they may not need for decades. Massive pumping will drain the Simsboro and Carrizo aquifers from rural wells east of Austin. At 142 miles long, Vista Ridge will be the largest water pipeline in Central Texas, setting the stage for the disastrous California-style water grid.

Why Oppose the Pipeline?

San Antonio’s mayor, City Council members, Chamber of Commerce representatives, and water utility hail the “Vista Ridge project” as providing secure, affordable, non-Edwards water for San Antonio Water System (SAWS) ratepayers, and for future generations of San Antonio residents. However, a closer look at the arguments in support of Vista Ridge reveals they simply don’t hold water.

The San Antonio City Council can and should withdraw from the Vista Ridge project immediately.

San Antonio Water System, why are you making working and middle class tax payers pay for expansion of water sources that accommodates waste like this? #NuestroAgua #WaterfulSA #WaterfulofIt -------------- SAWS has recently started a #WaterfulSA campaign that portrays San Antonio as a "waterful" city, even if though we have to pump it in from other areas. This campaign is #WaterfullofIt because it ignores alternative water sources as well as issues of water justice faced by the community. If you think this is #Waterfullofit too, share your photos with us using #WaterfulSA and #Waterfullofit and tag SAWS and Mi Agua Mi Vida.
