Friends of Hondo Canyon is fundraising money to support clean rivers in Hondo Canyon. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to cover Environmental Lawyer Legal Fees which will ultimately protect our creeks.
A Christian camp called "Camp Ozark" is trying to get a permit passed by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that would allow them to dump up to 49,000 gallons of treated waste water into Commissioners Creek, which runs directly into Hondo Creek. The Friends of Hondo Canyon is a non profit organization that is fighting a legal battle to prevent this camp from polluting one of the very last pristine creeks in the Bandera hill country!
Protecting Hondo Creek and Commissioners Creek is personal to anyone who sources their water from the Edwards Aquifer. If you live in San Antonio or Austin, this affects you! Hondo Creek runs underground and flows into the Edward’s Aquifer Recharge Zone contributing about 16% of water found in the Edward’s Aquifer.
If this permit is passed, Commissioner's and Hondo Creek will no longer be suitable for recreational use, and ranchers in Tarpley will be out of business because their animals will no longer be able to drink the contaminated source of water.
The Friends of Hondo Canyon are fighting a huge legal battle and we need your help to raise funds to pay for environmental lawyer legal fees. Please contribute, and amount helps!
