We collected petition signatures to allow Corpus Christi residents to decide whether or not our city spends $1.3 billion dollars on 2 desalination plants that will raise our water bills and hurt our environment. Despite hurtles caused by COVID-19, we turned in 4,227 signatures and more continue to be sent in! We are shy of the amount required to get this on the ballot, but the mayor and city council can STILL choose to put this on the ballot. That’s right–they can decide to put whether or not we pursue costly desalination plants on the November ballot so that all of us have the right to vote on the issue and have our voices heard.
Call the City Secretary at (361) 826-3105 to request a call-back for public comment BEFORE 11am on Tuesday August 11th!
We will continue to fight for our community’s voices to be heard. Please keep up with us here and on our Facebook page as we continue to press our mayor and council to put community needs first!

There are at least 4 seawater desalination plants that are trying to get permits in our area. This includes 2 seawater “desal” plants by the City of Corpus Christi.

We collected petition signatures so Corpus Christi residents can vote on this issue in November 2020. Here’s the charter amendment we want the city to adopt:
