Barton Springs Is Dead to Me

RECEIVED Mon., June 12, 2006

Dear Editor,
    Barton Springs pool is dead to me. Each summer, I kept hoping that the thick algae sludge would disappear, but year after year it worsens. Can prohibiting development in the tiny little areas called the recharge and contributing zones of the Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer really save the pool? For those of us that spend their free days listening to music, being on the Zilker trails, and taking a swim at Barton pool, the decision to commute an additional 10 minutes or someday have to backfill the polluted Barton pool is a no-brainer.
