Legal Fees for Sewage Fight

$1,755 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 16 people in 3 months
Save Barton Creek Association is now in a legal battle against the City of Dripping Springs to prevent sewage pollution in Onion Creek and Barton Springs. Our legal costs may be as much as $50,000. We have already begun incurring costs associated with the case that begins officially this month. 

The City of Dripping Springs has applied for a direct discharge wastewater permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to dump treated sewage into Onion Creek — almost a million gallons per day. This would threaten drinking water for those on wells and cause algae blooms that kill off wildlife from Dripping Springs to Austin. Onion Creek provides over 30% of Barton Springs’ flow!

We need your help now to pay for this expensive process. Thank you.

NOTE: If this case is settled early and we do not need all of the funds for legal fees, any additional funds will be directed to our No Dripping Sewage campaign to work against the problem of sewage in creeks and for sustainable alternatives. 

Save Barton Creek Association has been working to protect the Barton Creek, Barton Springs, and the Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer since 1979. More info on our website.
