Time to Put a Stop to Environmental Atrocities

RECEIVED Fri., March 7, 2008

Dear Editor,
    As an eastern Travis County resident, I’m touched by Lee Leffingwell’s sudden concern for the ecologically fragile land under the former future Villa Muse site. As the self-appointed environmental watchdog of the rural east, perhaps he would like to encourage the city of Austin to withdraw their Texas Commission on Environmental Quality permit application for a wastewater treatment plant on Gilleland Creek, which flows through the very same property. Even better, perhaps he would like to withdraw his sponsorship of the resolution to build a landfill, power plant, and wastewater treatment plant on the land adjacent to the site.
    Thanks Leffingwell. It’s about time someone put a stop to the environmental atrocities perpetuated by filmmaker and musician types.
