Do Research

Find articles that we can post on the Facebook page. Then just send us a message with a link to the article. You can also send memes.

Fact Finding

Find all the facts you can about this proposed petrochemical complex. Take a look at the state comptrollers website and find the 313 application for limitation of appraised value. Find out more about the 312 application for limitation of appraised value filed with the county. Read the minutes of the Corpus Christi Port Commissioners Meetings and the meetings of the San Patricio Regional Economic Development Corporation and Corpus Christi Regional Economic Development Corporation. Send us a message if you find anything interesting.

Write Articles

Are you a good writer? We need articles to include on our webpage. If you attend a meeting, please write an article about it. If you find some interesting facts, write about them. Then send your article to the Facebook page and our editor will take a look.

Water Usage

Spread the word about the water usage of the proposed petrochemical complex. We need to make sure cities in San Patricio County and cities in neighboring counties are aware of the drain these plants will have on our regional water supply. According to the Gulf Coast Growth Ventures webpage, the plants will use an average of 20 million gallons of water per day. That is 7.3 billion gallons per year. Compare that to the 7.12 billion gallons of water San Patricio County residents and industry currently use.  Exxon is talking about building a desalination plant, but that has been talked about for years and would be very costly.  It would also impact local fishing.
