#NoDrippingSewage Rally This Friday at Barton Springs Pool
Friday October 28, 5-7 pm
Barton Springs Pool (near the statue to the left of the main entrance)
The Issue: The City of Dripping Springs has applied for a direct discharge wastewater permit to discharge 995,000 gallons/day of treated sewage into Onion Creek. This water would still contain nitrates and phosphates that cause algae blooms and reduce the oxygen that fish need to survive. Not to mention, other wastewater pollutants like pharmaceuticals.
Why are we gathering at Barton Springs Pool? Onion Creek is the source of 40% of Barton Springs flow!
