About 2 years ago, Austin had this big water treatment plant to help people around the RRISD area get water easier. It was a modification, but many people didn't want it.

ACL is one of Austin's biggest event every year. Thousands of people go to enjoy the live music. Even people from other countries fly to attend this festival. This represents movement because lots of people come each year to Austin just to attend ACL.
