Property Owners from Granbury Against the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant Expansion

I spent an afternoon with Randy Brock, steering committee member for the group. He explained how Luminant would pull 3.7 billion gallons out of the Brazos River every year above Lake Granbury and redeposit between one-third and one-forth of that back into the river below the lake. About 61,000 acre-feet of river water would be lost to evaporation each year.

Already down more than four feet from the drought, Granbury Lake would drop another foot-and-a-half from an expanded Comanche Peak, Brock said.

“We’ve got to be realistic about the needs of the city,” Association member Bretta Conaway tells me, as we chat at Granbury’s Five-Star Sports Bar. “That means we’re going to have to choose between water quality and water quantity and economic development.”

Although I think this issue is a whole lot bigger than lakefront property owners, I'm glad to hear that citizens of Granbury are getting on board. The future of our water will be a matter of survival and not just about recreation and property values.
