Damage to Creek Persists

Explosive growth in Austin diminishes the decade-long effort to protect Barton Creek. Developers side-step the City's tough water quality ordinance through grandfathered exemptions and city-approved deals.

Over the past 10 years, the city has chosen to do almost nothing. Stratus/Freeport has been able to develop significant parts of their property. And other large tracts in the watershed have been developed by other owners with nary a protest by environmentalists.
