Good news that more fragile aquifer-replenishing land has been removed from dangerous development or pumping, especially in the vulnerable Devil’s Ear Spring Priority Focus Area. Now we need Seven Springs’s destructive permit denied and the water plant run by Nestle shut down for good.
We also need for the district to work toward limiting new pumping permits and fertilizer applications until our rivers get back on their feet. This is hitting the sources of our ills.
