Why: The Edwards Aquifer needs your help now more than ever! Kinder Morgan, the company behind the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock, is planning to build a natural gas pipeline right through Austin, San Marcos, Blanco, and Wimberly, TX. Right through the sensitive recharge zone and the karst of the aquifer itself! This means a spill or explosion, which happen regularly on pipelines and are we argue a question of when not if, could contaminate Jacobs Well, Barton Springs, Blue Hole and Spring Lake and the drinking water source of over 3 million people! So what are we going to do about it? The Wimberley Valley Watershed Association is working to file a law suit against Kinder Morgan to force them to conduct the necessary environmental impact study under the Endangered Species Act. But, that costs a LOT of money. So how can you help? Buy a raffle ticket or 30, enjoy a beer, and come dance to headlining musical acts from Austin and San Marcos.
