In August 1992, Austin voters overwhelmingly approved the SOS Water Quality Ordinance and the Save Our Springs Alliance was incorporated to defend and advocate for the ordinance, Barton Springs, and the Edwards Aquifer ecosystem.

Now, 22 years later, as the threats to Barton Springs and the aquifer unfortunately continue,  we're still here fighting to protect them.

Please join us, we need your support!

Update on proposed Mopac/45SW toll loop
Tuesday, 14 April 2015

Thank you to everyone who wrote to CAMPO, our transportation deciders, telling them to drop the proposed Mopac/SH 45 SW tolled, double-decker expansion loop. They got an earful from more than 1000 people telling them "no thank you" to converting Mopac to a 12-lane Interstate 35 West.

The CAMPO vote on the piece of the Mopac/45SW loop that would add 4-tolls on Mopac from Cesar Chavez to Slaughter Lane was postponed until the May 11th meeting, where CAMPO will also vote on the overall "2040 Plan" that includes the extension of 45SW from the southern end of Mopac to Interstate 35. There will be more decision points ahead, but the May 11th vote is an important one.
