New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 4, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas London Gilpin The faltis that we have experienc ed this past week should be a reminder to all of us of the effect that soils have on our lives and also how that effect can be influenced by the way in which we treat the The majority of the soils in Comal County are or moderately slowly permeable to In 87 percent of the land area of the county of made up of soils that have Intake rate of of an inch of water per hour or Included are 9 percent of soils In New Braunfelsjexas December The way soil is handled is important the county which take in less than of an inch per and 11 percent classed as rock outcroppings which are Imprevlous to Only 1 per cent of all soils in Comal County will absorb more than 2 Inches of rainfall In an Land slope has a profound effect on Studies have shown that while slopes do not have much effect on the total amount of runoff produced by a they do have a major effect on the rate at which the water Is discharged froma Consider a 24 hour rainfall total of 4 inches falling on a 50 acre watershed which is composed of a slowly permeable soil having a good grass A slope of 3 percent would generate 82 cubic feet per second of whereas a slope of 8 percent would generate 130 cubic feet per second runoff percent of Comal County is classified as having steep slopes that is greater than 8 Another 57 percent is considered to have moderate Moderate slopes range between 3 and 8 Ground cover can influence the rate of runoff even more than slope by slowing down the movement of water and increasing Its time of con centration in the A 24hour rain falling on a moderately sloping 50 acre watersh ed would generate 134 cubic feet per second of runoff with a poor grass cover as opposed to 82 cfs of runoff if the grass cover was Ground cover Influences the SVHS gets new VOE program A new Vocational Office Education Program is now in full swing at Smithson Valley High Designed to allow students to work in area offices and receive training in all forms of office the program is for students who are in terested in working a minimum of 15 hours per Its the first program of its

use of the word process ing and Some students are also taking classes in ac counting and We have a wide range of skills to offer said Karen who teaches the new I think its going to be a good pro Garland taught a VOE class in Hays County for seven years before coming to Smithson want to build up a pool of she explaining that more students will be coming in to the program at She has a lot of students who are interested in going to business college who are us ing the new program as an avenue to decide which area they like Im real sold on the Garland She added the com munity has been very receptive to the new but more quality training stations are needed for stu dent Any business person interested in hiring a VOE student to work part time may contact Garland at 885 Top ten amount of runoff as well as the rate of Roots and litter maintain the in filtration capacity of the thereby allowing more moisture to enter the Some of the moisture Is retained on vegetation and is not included in In itial Through the process of transpira vegetation reduces the amount of water held In the soil from previous This allows greater Initial moisture infiltration during subsequent Conservation practices have a definite impact on the rate and amount of runoff produced on a Such practices as proper grazing regular grazing brush and range seeding will Increase the amount of ground cover and the composition of mid and tall grasses in the plant Plowing on the contour and con structing terraces effectively reduces These practices also create small reservoirs which trap water and withhold it from the Initial runoff Grassed waterways constructed in natural drainage courses of fields reduce the amount and rate of Erosion is also reduced by reduc ing runoff The Comal and Hays County Soil Survey and the Guadalupe County Soil Survey contain valuable in formation on soil characteristics that influence They can be obtained from any of the local Soil Conservation Service field Soil
