SOS Initiative Springs to Landslide Win

August 1992

Austin citizens assert their green identity, endorsing the strictest water quality ordinance ever by a 2-to-1 margin. Voters also approve bonds to buy a Barton Creek Wilderness Park and land to protect endangered species.  

I believe that this is...the strongest water quality ordinance in the nation ever passed by citizen initiative. it was initiated by the community. It was validated to get on the ballot by the community, and then it was voted on, and approved by the community.

— Bridgid Shea, City Councilmember 1992
