aquifer woes By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer As temperatures in the area continue heat up so does the issue of water in the Edwards Aquifer judAge recentTy See TEXAS HEAT Page 3 ordered a courtappointed water monitor to pre pare a plan by Aug 1 to reduce pumping from the Edwards Aquifer The plan is aimed at the city of San Antonio whose metropolis of over one mil lion people relies on the aquifer as its only source of water The judges ruling as far as a negative effect on New Braunfels pales in comparison to San said Doug Miller local insurance agent and county water negotiator needed to get everybody with the Millier said San Antonio is being forced to look at alternate water resources and has an elec tion for the once again proposed Applewhite Reservoir set for Aug 13 New Braunfels already made plans for alternate sources years ago and takes its water from the Guadalupe River Judge Lucius Bunton in has ordered the water plan in response to pleadings from a suit originally filed in 1991 by the Sierra Club of which the City of New Braunfels and New Braunfels Utilities were intevenors The Edwards Underground Water District claims the aquifer is currently at its lowest level in three years although 1991 and 1992 saw high totals of rainfall and the aquifer reached its high est recorded point ever in June of992 at feet They report that the water level has dropped almost 10 feet since Memorial Day The level stood at feet Wednesday well above the 640foot city mandatory rationing for San Anto nio With little or no rainfall San Antonio would hit mandatory rationing levels by the end of the month New Braunfcls has measures to restrict con trollable water runoff when city water consump tion exceeds an average of 8 million gallons and the aquifer level reported from well J17 drops below 630 feet The National Weather Service docs predict a normal rain pattern for the next 90 days and a lit tle above normal for the next 30 athough rain totals for this year arc three inches below normal It is important to realize that aquifer levels produced by the EUWD and published in the neighboring newspapers and aquifer levels taken from near Comal Springs and published in the New Bmunfels HeraldZeitung are different but represent the same patterns The EUWD totals for San Antonio are taken from the J17 well near Fort Sam Houston Totals for New Braunfels arc taken by Bill Tepe of New Braunfels Utilities at a well in Panther Canyon The readings are posted at Comal Springs in Landa Park A onetenth change in our well is equal to about a foot he said You have to realize the relativity of the thing because of diffences in Comal Springs levels stood at feet Wednesday down 11 says chemical treatment of Dunlap was successful By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Followup surveys of hydrilla growth at Lake Dunlap indicate a suc cessful chemical treatment of the aquatic plant according to a statement released by the Texas Parks Wildlife Department the agency that conducted the treatment said approximately 90 per cent of the plant in treated areas was treated 59 acres in 14 loca tions over a twoday period including three public boat ramps and main bends in the river where boating access was all sites treated were open water areas not shoreline GuadalupeBlanco River Authority Planning and Development Director David Welsch said he took photos and video from a plane flying over Lake Dunlap and reported pleased results officials had worried heavy rains would cause a high flow result ing in dilution of the chemical too quickly They said however that the high flow rate helped the process by scour ing the lake of the weakened plant According to the the chem ical Aquathol K has been used since 1960 to treat hydrilla throughout the southeastern United States The chemical usually works within one to three days with control occur ring within one to two weeks Aquathol decomposes in the environ ment very quickly and does not bioac cumulate in plants animals or soil Even though it is expensive it gives the quickest said GBRA Water Quality Lab Director Debbie Magin Typically the effects of a success ful treatment will last through the summer growing season
