A judge granted legal standing to several citizens and environmental groups opposing SAWS' service area expansion far into sensitive areas of the Hill Country. Among them is the Helotes Heritage Association, which has retained the Austin law firm of Lowerre & Frederick to fight the expansion. The Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance and the City of Grey Forest were also given standing.
