As climate change and fast-paced growth proceeds in Austin, there is growing concern to both secure water supply for the future while conserving a finite resource for our region. Will you pledge to support an Austin future that prioritizes conservation, reuse, and local water supplies, and to oppose actions that would require pumping of groundwater in either the Edwards Aquifer or the Carrizo/Simsboro aquifers east of Austin beyond a sustainable level that matches rates of recharge? Rate your support on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most support and 1 being the least.

All new development/growth in Austin should be self-sustaining on every level: all net-zero energy, carbon-sequestering, grey-water system, rain-water capturing, and regenerative for the community in an economic context. When we reestablish the rights of the people, all new development falls into our collective authority, with the crucial awareness of many generations beyond our own.
