    Just got the responce. They make it sound not so bad

    Thank you for taking the time to provide input on the Brushy Creek
    Regional Utility Authority Water Supply Project.

    We understand your concern about protecting Lake Travis. It is indeed a
    beautiful recreational resource. However, we must keep in mind that
    the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) created the lake decades ago,
    with the assistance of then Congressman Lyndon Johnson, to end
    disastrous flooding and provide a reliable source of water and electricity to
    residents throughout the lower Colorado River basin.

    This project will not drain Lake Travis. Lake Travis is a variable
    level lake, one that fills during times of excess rains and from which
    water is released as municipal, agricultural, and other needs require. The
    amount of water secured for this project is but a fraction of what has
    been made available by the LCRA. As a holder of municipal and
    irrigation water rights, LCRA is required to conserve and supply water according
    to a water management plan developed by water supply experts and
    approved by the state of Texas. The plan prepares for "worst case
    scenarios"-long droughts followed by extreme flooding as we've seen in recent
    months.

    The $3/1000 gallons price you refer to is about twice the cost of the
    Lake Travis water. The price you cite assumes no treatment of aquifer
    water would be necessary. That may not be the case. If the aquifer water
    does need to be treated, it would be even more expensive.

    As elected officials, we have a responsibility to ensure a reliable,
    cost-effective water supply and to plan for future water needs. It would
    be irresponsible of us not to do so. The region's safety and economic
    health depends on our due diligence. Schools, hospitals, businesses, and
    families - present and future - depend on these decisions. We have
    thoroughly researched other sources of water. Lake Travis is the best
    choice. Securing water from Lake Travis is in line with state regional
    water plans and is supported by studies going back more than a decade.

    We are continuing to evaluate the site of the deep water intake. We
    realize construction will have unavoidable impacts to those living nearby
    and along the construction route. We sincerely regret that. With many
    public improvement projects, some have to put up with temporary
    inconvenience. We will work with neighbors to seek ways to minimize those
    impacts wherever possible.

    We welcome and need your input. An open, honest discussion is one of
    the best ways to ensure sound decisions. We hope you will continue to be
    involved and encourage you to seek accurate information.

    For project news, please visit www.bcrua.org. For information on LCRA's
    water management planning process, please visit www.lcra.org.
