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
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.

water management planning process, please visit www.lcra.org.
