Boost protection for Texas’ pristine waters

There are only a few truly pristine rivers left in Texas. SB 1747 and HB 4146 (passed on 5/11/21) would help protect them.  Help by voicing support for this bill. 

Only about 40 streams out of over 2,000 streams in all of Texas are considered pristine because they have no detectable phosphorous–found in wastewater. Included, for example, is the beloved Upper Frio River, which flows through the most popular State Park in Texas, the Upper San Marcos River, a very short portion of the stream fed by the largest spring in the State and the iconic Devils River.
