Support of North Neches Wildlife Refuge sign now

Dear Congressman Hensarling:

Support of North Neches Wildlife Refuge

I ask your support in preserving the North Neches River Valley. Please take the steps necessary to establish a National Wildlife Refuge along the Neches River, below Lake Palestine, between highway 79 & highway 84. I want my children and their children to continue to experience the unique, unspoiled, free-flowing Neches Rivers scenic wildlife.

While damming the Neches will advantage the residents of Dallas and give them a reserve water supply. It will harm those living in the Southern portion of your Fifth Congressional District. Specifically, damming the Neches will cause both economic and environmental damage to Anderson & Cherokee Counties, as well as to the Big Thicket National Preserve down-stream. If Dallas builds the Fastrill Reservoir it will require that local land owners sell land that has been in their family for hundreds of years. In addition, flooding the Neches River between Palestine & Rusk, Texas, will require the Texas State Historical Railroad State Park to be closed or relocated.

I have other apprehensions about Dallas impounding East Texas water resources and piping it back to Dallas, but today I am concerned with gaining your support of the US Fish & Wildlife Services proposed 25,000 acre wildlife refuge along the North Neches River. The refuge will protect the North Neches River and can transform the area into a national treasure and a tourist destination for all America to visit and enjoy.


CC: Representative Chuck Hopson
Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison
Chief, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service

    perhaps if the Dallas area residents were to water their lawns with their swimming pool water,cheating Sabine Lake of its necessary lifeblood wouldn't be thought a fair trade.
