HI is expected to make a ruling today on the latest motion by the Sierra Club to strengthen restric tions on pumping of the Edwards Aquifer Among the items the Sierra Club wants the judicially appointed water monitor Joe Moore to do is create an emergency plan to restrict pump ing cut off federal funding if the plan is stalled and order the Environmental Protection Agency to refuse any new wastewater permits in the aquifer region If the impending ruling is in favor of die Sier ra Club there is a potential of expediting San Antonio and the regions progress toward alternate sources and said local insurance agent and water issue expert Doug Miller The fountain darter calls only Comal and San Marcos Springs home Judge Bunton to rule on Sierra Club request The small fish has lived here for centuries and could not survive outside the crystalpure water from the springs Little could this creature know how his life would affect the lives of millions of human beings in this area A suit filed two years ago to protect the endan gered darter has resulted in federal court orders state legislation blocked legislation and yet more court orders and ruling as the fight over water issues rages on The original suit in 1992 involved the Sierra Club and GuadalupeBlanco River Authority ver sus the Department of Interior trying to force protection of the endangered species in the Comal and San Marcos springs Bunton ordered the state to come up with a plan to regulate pumping which it did by creating the Edwards Aquifer Authority to which Miller was appointed to represent Comal County A threatened lawsuit by the MexicanAmerican Legal Defense and Education Fund blocked the appointed authority and resulted in Bunton appointing a water monitor While authorities such as the GBRA were co plaintiffs in original suit they do not support the current motion They went too far as far as we are said GBRA General Manager Bill West We are dedicated to the protection of the springs but are mindful of economic development for the region The action the Sierra Club took was a little too Comal County Judge Carter Casteel has served on underground water issue committees and is familiar with the complex issues surrounding underground water We are very supportive of the Sierra said Casteel We firmly believe Comal Springs is important to the lifeblood of the The battle has come down to San Antonio ver sus the smaller communities in the region Casteel said San Antonio is the only metro politan area of its size in the nation to depend on one single source of water The San Antonio mayor Nelson Wolff has blasted parties saying the areas military bases are threatened by proposed water restriction mea sures that could affect the decision to keep open or close the bases We dont want to lose military bases We dont want to lose highway said Miller We want them to recognize the problem isout there and address Miller said Comal County and New Braun fels needs to work with San Antonio to come to possible future solutions such as a surface water facility that San Antonio can use or possibly bringing water from somewhere the source is more plentiful other than the aquifer Arrest made
