It’s true. A TCEQ permit application is in the works to build a dam on the South Llano River. It is known as Waterstone. It is a serious threat to the ecological health of the South Llano and TRPA opposes it. If you own property or derive a living from the Llano River, e.g., fishing guides, outdoor guiding, canoe liveries, etc., it is especially important that you file a request for hearing. The centerline of the planned dam is https://goo.gl/maps/nH68UcPMgq87hS716 in Edwards County, Zip Code 78880.
