Up to 2,750 cubic feet of water per second will be allowed at the confluence in New Braunfels during weekdays and 1,200 cfs on weekends through Sept. 20 The 2,750 flows through the city will continue through weekends until mid-October when the lake level is expected to be at 900 feet. During work on the hydroelectric plant, water will be pumped over the dam into the river GBRA will pump 75 cfs as required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The river authority is requesting the requirement be changed to allow only 25 cfs be pumped over the dam during con struction The reduced lake level is necessary to allow construction in the outlet works where the generation plant is being built. “It doesn’t stay at 900 (feet above sea level). The level starts rising immediately, probably, depending on the inflow,” Welsch said. Based on historical river flows, the lake could rise as much as I foot per week, he said That inflow is unlikely, but Welsch said if the lake level rises significantly before work is completed at the plant site, work could be halted to allow for releases The river authority has designated a time in January and in February for releases through the dam conduit if necessary “We re looking at getting to 900 (feet above mean sea level* on Nov I and then being full again March I. To do that, it’s either fill up slowly or take a break (from construction) and release water.” he said Historical flow records of the area indicates that, if this is an average winter, the reservoir level will return to 909 feet in early March Welsch said the lower lake level will have an impact on some areas around the lake Some boat ramps in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer parks again will not be usable Ron Ruffeneck. a spokeman for the corps, said none of the parks will be closed during the period when the lake is lowered One boat ramp at Jacobs Creek Park. one at Comal Park and one at Cranes Mill Park will not be usable by large boats He said it is uncertain whether the boat ramp No 2 at Cranes MIU Park will be usable “But it will be at least mid October before we reach 900 < feet above mean sea level),” he said The corps spokesman said he did not know if any of the boat ramps are in need of repairs “That (lower lake level) will give us an opportunity to look at some things that we haven’t been able to look at for a while especially this year " he said Ruffeneck said the corps is still making needed repairs to park facilities damaged earlier this summer when the lake reached the highest level in its history The spokesman added that the lower lake level will not seriously damage the fish and wildlife dependent on the lake I hat is something that has been looked at and there will be no effect he saidSign Continued from Page IA family) districts, general business and central business districts, commercial resort, light industrial and heavy industrial districts The proposal also calls for maximum height for all billboards shall be 32 feet with minimum clearance of 9 feet from the center line of the road grade closest to the base of the sign No signs shall be closer than 1,000 feet as measured from the closest point of the bases of the signs to the center line of the adjacent street or road on either side of the street, according to the proposal Spacing w as a major concern during past sign control debate The height limit in the proposed measure is IO 5 feet less than that allowed under state law Lmgamfelter said Construction requirements include that signs exceeding 128 square feet must be designed to withstand wind load pressure of 25 pounds per square foot, excluding trim and embellishments Pressure of 25 pounds per square foot roughly translates to the ability to withstand winds of up to 105 miles per hour Lmgamfelter said Temporary off premise signs would be permitted at the discretion of the city planning director and would be allowed to be installed for no more than 21 days Signs that are painted on attached to or placed in or on a parked vehicle would tie pro hibited Variances to the ordinance would be asked of the city's building rev lew board and ultimately the city council Political signs shall be exempt under the proposed ordinance as long as they are less than 32 square feet and are displayed within 9u day. before and IO days after the election for which they are intended Lmgamfelter said he would bring the proposed ordinance to the cliv . planning and zoning office TuesdayRace Continued (rom Page 1A He is a member of First Protestant United Church where he has taught Sunday school Guenther was hired by the New Braunfels police department as a dispatcher in 1968 and soon was pro moted to patrolman, a position he held until 1973 He left to take a safer ' job which he said offered double the salary he was making That “safer job was as a driver with the Kerrville Bus Company In March 1973 a bus he was operating was struck by a drunken driver on a narrow bridge near Bakersfield killing seven passengers injuring 23 and burning Guenther over 25 percent of his body Guenther was praised and cited as a hero by company officials for pulling victims to safety from the burning wreckage He was hospitalized for eight months and later returned to driving a bus “That is one reason I will actively seek to getting drunk drivers off the road because I was nearly killed by one They are killing too many Americans and Texans Guenther said the new open container law that went into effect this month wa. a step in the right direction but Usa little v ague in some areas Guenther worked in Dallas since 1984 as a courier for a law firm and moved back to New Braunfels in March He is not married which be savs would allow him to devote hisObituariesWalnut Donald J.
