Where oil is king in DeWitt County there is another precious commodity... water. Where it comes from, where it goes, and how the community can ensure that it is protected is a process that is no longer determined by the state.
Reverend Sam Brannon, of Texas Interfaith Center for Public Policy said, “Most people do not realize that there is a water planning process. It is a democratic process where the more people involved the bigger the difference we make. It is a public policy that works.”
Rev. Brannon and George Oliver, Outreach Specialist for Texas Impact, spoke on the Water Captains Program in Nordheim last Sunday at St. Paul Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall.
Oliver said, “We are here to teach people to be a voice to legislation and a voice for it’s communities of faith.”
