  • 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!

Public Hearing; City Says Stop the Charade
Monday, 28 July 2014

News Flash:

Last week the City of Austin asked TxDOT to pull the plug on its draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) because the document is woefully deficient in actual environmental analysis or honest evaluation of alternatives. Read the city manager's letter here. Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer Conservation District technical staff made similar recommendations in their draft comments here.

Join us at the Public Hearing on the SH 45 SW aquifer toll road draft Environmental Statement today, Tuesday, July 29th at the Bowie High School auditorium and be heard. An "open house" begins at 5:00 p.m.; a presentation (aka sales pitch) will begin at 6:00 p.m. and public comment will be taken beginning around 6:30 p.m. Find us at the hearing tomorrow, read our summary of key points here and file your own written comments before the final deadline August 13th online here.  An update on the overall 45SW aquifer toll road picture is posted here.

 
Public Hearing Written Comments on SH 45 SW
Thursday, 24 July 2014

Next Tuesday July 29th, starting at 5:00 PM but going late, TxDOT and CTRMA are hosting a public hearing at the Bowie High School cafeteria to take public comment on their draft Environmental Impact Statement for 45SW. The lengthy document is riddled with unsupported assertions that the toll road will have "negligible" impacts on the environment. Read our summary of the most egregious shortcomings of the draft EIS on the Keep Mopac Local website here and file your own written comments before August 13th online here. SOS Alliance and our Keep Mopac Local allies will be filing detailed comments by the 13th. An update on the overall 45SW aquifer toll road picture is posted here.
