Edwards Aquifer and the reg istering of wells as part of an emergency management plan Monday Joe G Moore appointed as a water monitor by Senior District Judge Lucius Bunton m sented his plan to Bunton to manage the Edwards and prevent Comal Springs from going dry in periods of drought or dry weather Bunton can use this report as a consideration in the ongoing lawsuit filed by the Sierra Club several years ago of which the city of New Braunfels was an intervenor Moore met with local representatives last week in a preview of the plan which calls for voluntary and mandatory reductions in pumping when the Comal Springs flow reaches 250 cubic feet per second and below Doug Miller water negotiator for Comal County and New Braunfels said Moore discussed the corre lation between measuring units of the Edwards and Comal springflow He Moore said How do we know the correla tion is going to hold said Miller Weve noticed the spring flow correlation between the J17 well at Fort Sam Houston and the spring flow has Miller said tracking the aquifer level at Fort Sam Houston may not determine just how much in danger spring flow is He said some of the larger freeflow ing wells like one at Sam Houston have been capped and the city of New Braunfels now uses surface water Another key point would have Edwards wellusers register with the state so that pumping could be mon itored Miller said this point was brought up before the state legislature in the last session but was quickly hushed That was talked about back in he said We need to identify who is taking Miller said that any entity business or person selling water must register with the state Other than s that certain larger pumping operations can pump water without reporting their usage CISD looking at water conservation
