Albln Al Helnemeyer Erna Dickey and Thekla The Fish and Wildlife Service has resumed their study of the Comal Springs environment with the help of a nationally known environmental modeling expert Thomas B Hardy I started working on fishrelated impacts and assessments back in the said Hardy the Director of the Institute for Nat ural Systems Engineering at Utah State Uni versity This is not a typical system the critters are different than what we usually deal with but generally well end up with a model that will predict for different levels of the spring discharge for 400 cubic feet per second because of the given aquifer level and well have a will then predict given the channels geom shape of the deep the water is at any point in the channel down to the Guadalupe River Then well have another model that knowing the geometry and the height of the water will predict how fast the water is mov ing at any point in the channel Another model that for those conditions and what kind of day it is what the temperature is expected to be going down the Comal River And then there will be another model that takes all that information together and based on the knowledge about the relation ship between different kinds of habitat in the river and how many different kinds offish are there well have a relationship that will allow us to evaluate for this depth for this velocity for this kind of vegetation this is how usable this environment is for this organ ism primarily the darter The idea is that if you add up all those usable areas whether they are good poor or indifferent you can get a relationship by looking at 10 cfs 20 cfs 30 cfs and then you can look at what flow levels are really necessary to provide adequate amounts of habitat for the organism youre trying to pro Hardy said theres also a certain amount of art involved in predicting what might hap pen under certain conditions He has been studying one river system for 17 years and he says theres still a lot he doesnt know about the fish in that river The study of the Comal Springs environment has only a couple of years to make a determination of what it will take to protect the endangered species there but Hardy was pretty impressed with the local habitat Forget said Hardy Look at the people and the economy of New Braunfels in terms of the recreation base thats here and the beauty of this river that in and of itself to me would be enough to get people to mobilize and say we want our Still he acknowledged that managing water resources is difficult Its complicated how big will San Marcos get how big will this city get how big does the metropolitan area of San Anto nio get before you get to the point where you really shouldnt have anymore people in this particular area In some cities in the West there are no new water caps no new housing is as big as its going to get If someone moves out someone can move in but those are hard Mayor Rudy Seidel proclaims Aug 3 as National Night Out By JENNIFER
