As the water supply in the Lake Travis area nears the lowest levels in history, LCRA is sending more water downstream to maintain shoreline habitats.
Yesterday, I wrote a Plea from One Lake Travis Lover to Another.
Today, I want to make you aware of an upcoming event that you can attend and help make a difference in how the area lakes are being managed.
Mark your calenders for the Save Lake Travis Fundraising Party happening September 28, 2013.
Admission is free, but the Central Texas Water Coalition is desperately seeking donations. They need your donations to help with legal costs, funding for needed scientific research, and education efforts. CTWC is fighting to protect our lakes from continuing to be drained to provide enormous amounts of water for rice farming. All proceeds will go to help CTWC and Friends of CTWC. If we don’t change current LCRA policies, we are destined to have lower and lower lake levels.
The Shades Drink Truck will have beer, wine, cocktails, soda, and water available. There will be live music by Ken Davidson and the Black Diamond Experience. Most importantly, you’ll learn how the mismanagement of Lake Travis led to it being emptied to supply rice farmers with water in the midst of a drought and how you can help change this so it doesn’t happen again.
I hope to see you there!
