New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 17, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas Sunday June Decling water levels prompts conservation call from EUWD officials From staff reports Steadily declining water levels in the Edwards Aquifer have prompted a call from officials at the Edwards Underground Water District EUWD for citizens to step up ordinary con servation efforts in order to meet the seasonal drop Water levels in the Edwards Aquifer have been averaging a drop of almost a half of a foot a day The water elevation at the Bexar County Index Well was recorded at feet above sea level on Friday July 15 EUWD General Manger Rick 111 gner reminds citizens that the region is in the middle of the hottest driest part of the year with temperatures often hovering around 100 degrees The combination of hot weather and little rainfall puts a lot of strain on the aquifer We cant control how hot or dry it is but we can control how much water we he said Since 40 percent of summer water use is appliedto landscapes a tremen dous amount of water can be saved simply by watering properly Water in the cool of the day between 8 and 8 Also grass benefits more from a thorough deep watering once a week rather than several light applications Other simple measures such as fix ing leaking faucets and toilets filling clothes washers and dish washers to capacity and using a bucket and sponge or a shutoff valve on your hose when washing your car can add up to significant water savings Officials estimate that common sense conservation efforts can result in at least a 1015 percent reduction in water use For more information on how to Be Water Tight indoors or outdoors or for a free water conservation kit contact the Ewards Underground Water District at 210 2222204 or Junked vehicles

would come under their court Weve been studying this for quite some said County Judge Carter Casteel The county is grow ing Were now involved in a lot of these Challenges have come recently against county regulations involving the Water Oriented Recreation Dis trict and the countys sexually ori ented business order The junked vehicle order is another signal that the countys face is changing from rural to a more urban one Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 Harold Krueger said the county must look at the order from a point of law and be sure that the order is backed by legal precedent Do we want to take vehicles off property he asked the court Were getting into something very technical here if we take vehicles off someones County Attorney Nathan Rhein lander said most cases would prob ably result from complaints to the Environmental Heath office which would file a notice with the accused violator who would then have to remove the vehicle or request a hear ing within 10 days Health care proposal for county employees tabled By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Comal County Commissioners Court heard several items Thursday including discussions of health care for county employees The Court decided to table a motion whether to renew their contract with the McKenna health plan until commissioners could consider other options or better review the plan County Treasurer Bart Bartholomew
