"If they don't want Omega Seamaster 36mm Automatic to settle, if their demands get too ridiculous" then the developers will work through the state environmental commission and pursue any necessary avenues in court, he said.
Council Member Laura Morrison said the proposed wastewater treatment plant "poses a major threat to drinking water, as well as environmental and recreational uses of Barton Springs."
Andy Barrett, a lawyer for the developers, said he'd prefer that negotiations continue with the city.
"This development is dangerous enough that the city should exert the full power of its legal department in an attempt to get the best possible deal," Beall told the Austin Environmental Board.
The City of Austin and Save Our Springs Alliance remain the only parties opposed to the project, first proposed five years ago.
The city already has spent about $10,000 on a study that pointed to the possibility of treated wastewater ending up in watershed creeks; SOS spent about $14,000 on the study, said Bunch, who is not in talks with the project developers. Geological Study, found significantly higher contamination in recent years of Barton Springs and its contributing creeks by nitrate. Septic systems and the spraying of treated wastewater on land in the fast growing Hill Country were named as likely suspects.

Bunch was blunter at the briefing: "The land is Swiss cheese."
The land sits in unincorporated Hays County, adjacent to the Ruby Ranch subdivision east of Dripping Springs, west of Buda and south of Austin. It also sits adjacent to large undeveloped tracts purchased by the City of Austin to protect water quality in Barton Springs and has grabbed attention because it is in the recharge zone.
The proposed treatment of the sewage "is rather stringent," John Dupnik, an assistant general manager of the Barton Springs district, told the City of Austin's Environmental Board last month. Dupnik added: "Our board was satisfied enough to withdraw a protest."
the director of SOS, a group no stranger to drawn out litigation with developers, forecast that if the state commission approved construction of the small sewage treatment plant, his group would turn to the courts to prevent the project from moving forward.
that the irrigated sewage water could end up in Barton Springs. They're trying to pressure the City Council into continuing to fight the project.
Bill Bunch, director of SOS, said the city "is the primary steward of Barton Springs, and the TCEQ and judges view the city with a degree of respect not accorded to SOS."
Jon Beall, a board member of the nonprofit Save Barton Creek Association, which advocates for Barton Springs protections, also encouraged the city to press on in the fight with the developers.
Among the terms under negotiation, Barrett said, is whether to run a dye test to track where runoff and treated sewage water from the tract would go. Previous dye studies in the vicinity have determined that it can take as little as three days for runoff to reach Barton Springs.
At the city's September briefing, city environmental officer Chuck Lesniak maintained that the proposed wastewater application rate "is excessive given geologic conditions."
Mayor Lee Leffingwell said he wouldn't comment because it's a pending legal matter.
An administrative law judge is scheduled to hear the issue in mid November. The judge will then make a recommendation to the state environmental commission. The agency has tended to favor developers, regardless of recommendations by the judges.
Trying to navigate between the costs of a likely protracted legal fight and the pursuit of stiffer environmental protection, the Austin City Council will decide next week whether to drop opposition to a plan for a subdivision and small sewage treatment plant just outside city limits. project, a roughly 1,300 home subdivision, would sit on 600 acres in northern Hays County, atop the environmentally sensitive Barton Springs recharge zone. Rain in that area can seep directly into the portion of the Edwards Aquifer that resurfaces in the Barton Springs pool.
Now, amid further negotiations, the Austin City Council is considering doing the same.
"I like to resolve things," Barrett said. "I don't like to go to TCEQ to make a decision. If we can work together, it makes it easier.
"If anything is ever causing an issue, we'll address that," Barrett said.

To get rid of treated sewage water, project developers Shaun Breedlove and Lee Weber have proposed spraying it on 120 acres of Bermuda grass and winter rye. A permit, which would be issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, would allow them to spray up to Omega Seamaster 300 Big Triangle
