CQftPSL SPATULAS OP Guest Column The task of water resource management Bexar County and San Antonio thwartdrought contingency planning This is the second in a series of Guest Columns written by Kenneth of the Edwards Underground Water District board of directors on the subject of water resource management and administration of the aquifer that provides potable water to much of Texas Hill Country By KENNETH IKELS Edwards Underground Water District As mentioned in the last the agree ment reached by Edwards Underground Water District and City of San Antonio in establishing policies and recommending the development of a drought contingency plan was a milestone in the regional approach to the management of the Ed wards The achievement of this agree ment rests primarily on the shoulders of several individuals whoee persistence and devotion made it possible Tom KlWD general Carl a private citizen with a lot of and Rebecca Cedillo of the City of San Antonio staff In the EUWU and City of San Antonio will maintain the institu tional relationship of the Joint Sponsors Commit tee on Water Resources or the development of resources and management policies and the mechanisms and authorities necessary to imple ment those policies The recommendations of the Joint Committee will be subject to approval by the Edwards board of directors and San Antonio City It might be interesting at this lime to reflect on a recommendation of the implementation Ad visory Task Force 11ATF i that was not agreed to and what the implications are The most important recommendation presented by the 1ATF to the ELWD and City of San Antonio was that pumping withdrawal from the aquifer should be thai is districtwide pumping and average spring flow in Hays and Comal counties should not exceed the average annual recharge of the aquifer acrefeel i ihe IATF suggested thai pumping be limited to acrefeet per year With Ihese suggested it would be necessary for City of San Antonio to seek and commit other sources o water in the very near future because the city would probably be the first entity in the dislricl lo exceed its water allocation At this the Joinl Commiltee members representing Cily of San Anlonio indicated thai they could not agree to limiting the pumping or allocations for San Anlonio unless the EUWD restructured its board so that Bexar County would be more equitably represented The representalion on ihe EUWD now consists of three elected officials from each county In other a board consisting of 15 members Various factions within San Antonio and Bexar Counly have implied lhat since Bexar Counly pays approximately 92 percent of the EUWD taxes iherc should be a change in favor of Bexar C and only with a change in the structure of the ElWD board makeup will the impass on allocations be overcome The boitom line is lhat no regional water plan is possible at this time unless the represeniation issue is settled eilher by negotiations or court ac lion The KlWl Board of Directors will confront Ihis issue and some changes in the drought con linnency plan al its next meeting March 25 Andy Rooney Mail goody always interesting The mail has been bad By I mean The
