Inspectors find ongoing problems with structural pollution control measures at Barton Creek Mall. The failure and under-performance of these systems alarm environmental advocates.

The pollution of an aquifer takes a long time to clean up. It's unfair as well as undesirable. If we've already crapped it out, future generations don't get the choice of having it and they have a right to clean water, too.

— Environmental Attorney Joe Riddell
