  • What's New

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!
