For anyone concerned about groundwater in Central Texas and the unjust, insensible, and profit-driven pumping schemes that threaten not only our private wells, but also our local springs, creeks, and rivers - it is easy to feel overwhelmed with anger and despair. Yet, there is real hope that our community can protect our groundwater by building a unified non-partisan front based on education, public awareness, and importantly, a well funded legal defense team....oh, and throwing super fantastic shin-dig-jubilees - even in the face of impending doom!
This is where The Trinity Edwards Springs Protection Association (TESPA) comes into play.
The mission of The TESPA is to protect the Trinity and Edwards aquifers from overpumping, the springs that flow from this interconnected system, and the property rights of landowners who depend on and wish to conserve this precious natural resource.
TESPA is a group of highly experienced environmental attorneys working at reduced rates and/or donating their time to help us protect our waters through legislative and legal avenues. They vigilantly track the legal proceedings concerning groundwater use and permitting, help us interpret this information so we can respond appropriately, and represent the people's interests in court. They are currently preparing to contest the proposed ElectroPurification permit with BSEACD, which is an extremely needed yet expensive processes.

As the population in Central Texas continues to grow, water suppliers are searching for new sources of water, and the Trinity Aquifer is a target. Although groundwater pumping from the aquifer is already occurring at an unsustainable rate, more groundwater development projects are in the works. Current groundwater law facilitates the mining of our aquifers and elevates groundwater development over groundwater protection. TESPA is taking legal action and advocating for policy changes to ensure that groundwater in Texas is sustainably managed and landowners' property rights are protected.

Please read this excellent guest editorial by water warrior Patrick Cox, who fought with us from the beginning in 2015. His eloquent words and balanced reasoning about possible improvements to the permit are excellent. https://haysfreepress.com
