Join Save Barton Creek Association, Wimberley Valley Watershed Association, Clean Water Action, Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance and our hosts at Patagonia for a kick off event in our campaign against sewage pollution in Hill Country Creeks.

Dumping sewage effluent into creeks poses serious risks to our wells, aquifers, springs, and streams—threatening human health, property values, and our Hill Country’s economic future. Alternatives such as land application, beneficial reuse, and newer decentralized technologies are approaches that can allow growth without threatening our water supply.

Cities have grown without direct discharge – for example, the highland lakes communities of Lakeway and Marble Falls near Austin.

The proposed Dripping Springs permit to discharge nearly a million gallons of sewage effluent per day into Onion Creek would set a dangerous precedent. Other permits to dump sewage effluent into our creeks are on the horizon, threatening the entire Edwards Aquifer. This is perhaps the greatest threat facing central Texas waterways today.

Come learn about and support the #NoDrippingSewage campaign to protect Hill Country water!
