time A hell copter from the AANTF were used In the raid Heat is up water is down By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer The heat is up and the water is down Everyone feels the heat of this Texas summer which has already proven to biniStter than normal Put that heat with no moisture and river flows and aquifer levels will drop Last week was great but yester day was running about 50 percent said Jim Dunman of Jerrys Rentals Monday Dunman said he was one of many outfitters who would begin pulling rafts if things do not improve Were getting to the point of putting the rafts he said Its not worth it to repair holes in your Businesses along the Guadalupe have seen a good summer with high flow rates during Memorial Day and a good rate during the Fourth of July weekend Without significant rainfall in the last two months the overflow from Canyon Lake has gradually decreased Business owners say however that the effect has barely tourists v Inflow at Canyon Lake is 120 cubic feet per second while outflow is 148 cfs The Comal Springs continues to flow at near 300 cfs although it too is going down with the Edwards Aquifer level This year has been a banner said Clinton Brandt at The Ole Mill Stream Were still running well ahead of last Brandt said he can judge the river level by looking at the entry ramp at his place He said it is about four inches below a normal point In 1991 the riv er dropped to a low point but people were still able to float In 1991 people had to get off the ramp and walk over the rocks to get to the he said Its three to four feet above that Brandt said based on current flow he believes the Comal River will last through the summer I really seriously believe the aquifer is going to hold up at least during the summer he said If this weather keeps up through the fall well then thats another Schitteibahn Water Park obviously a very large business does not depend entirely on water from the Comal Riv er In fact marketing director Sherrie Brammell said the park uses an enclosed chlorinated system and some water from the Comal Attendance is up over last year We think its a combination of hot weather and new she said dry weather is actually good for us People want to come and cool The New Braunfels Independent School District approved a tract of land for a future school site and approved an alternative school in meet ing Tuesday night NBISD acquired acres adja cent to Oak Run school for a future school which has yet to be determined Superintendent Charles Bradberry said the cost was good because the property comes complete with util ity lines already installed Everything is already he said It would have cost more had we had to install all the He said the purchase is actually the second part of land purchases approved by a bond issue several years ago A lot had already been bought across from Memorial The purchase passed 61 with Sylvia Sanchez dissenting She wanted to table the motion until a new board could be seated Elections are Aug 13 Board mem bers decided to approve the purchase and outgoing member Arlon Hermes commented that business would go on as usual even seats on the board were up for election The board approved an agreement to contract with a private company for an alterna tive school a compa ny out of Illinois will provide the school for up to 30 atrisk students sent there for various reasons Ombudsman will provide the rooms and teachers for the program at a cost of per student As far as I know we are the first district in Texas to contract with a pri vate said Bradberry I think you will see more and more dis tricts looking at this type of arrange Sanchez asked if a counselor could be added to the school but Bradberry said the cost around would be too nigh considering counselors at oth Tax payment deadline nears

to do something about it Dunman said WORD pays some outfitters to clean the river and Jerrys is included with Gruene River Co He said large cleanups by WORD have been successful but wanted to do more They clean once at the beginning of the year and once at the end Thats not he said Dunman has sent a crew of eight or nine out each Mon day five miles down the left side of the river He said he gives incentives like a free restaurant meal to the winning team of two Dunman said the group has averaged 160 to 200 filled WORD bags each trip He added he gives customers 25 per cent off the price of

have been cleaning the left side of the river this season and in seasons past but issued a challenge for other outfitters to do the same We took it in the spirit of a said Rivers We do it all the time It took the two of them to do what we did though Eighteen employees and two divers combed the GuadWupe for trash mostly aluminum cans Rivers said they usually do it on Tuesdays i Rivers is not part of the WORD program for funding some outfitters to clean the river because he is a member of the WORD board of directors He feels the outfitters should take an interest in main taining small portions of
