Make your voice heard! City council decisions, regulatory actions, legislation in Austin; we need to be ready to act at a moment's notice to support the good and stop the bad.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple phone call or email message to sway the opinion of our local elected leaders and officials. Contact us and we will add you to our Alamo Sierra Club Action Alert Email List. You don't have to be a Sierra Club member to receive our alerts, (but we do hope you'll join us).

SAWS Vista Ridge Pipeline Deal

City Council approved SAWS' $3.4 billion Vista Ridge Pipeline contract on October 30th. But we remain committed to working on this issue so we can make sure the deal is equitable to ratepayers and environmentally sound.

Visit our Clearinghouse for Vista Ridge Information webpage, where you can find news articles about the deal, comments and analyses about the proposal, and technical studies.
