Ilan Levin is an environmental attorney who currently works as Associate Director of the Environmental Integrity Project. He recalls the time nearly 20 years ago when he was involved in the effort by the San Marcos River Foundation to secure instream flows for the River, Aransas Bay, and its wildlife (including the whooping crane). While the Foundation's water right filing was pending with the state agency (TNRCC), its director showed the Legislature that the application was legitimate under the water code of the time, leading the State to retroactively change the code, and allowing TNRCC to deny the application.
