aquifer to be shifted to NB EUWD to install two new devices to track Comal Springs flow By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Two new devices soon to be installed in New Braunfels by the Edwards Underground Water District will shift the focus of monitoring the Edwards Aquifer to the city The EUWD plans to install two streamflow gauges one at Dry Comal Creek and one at Blieders Creek by the end of November according to Field Operations Director Bobby Bad er The gauges will allow the EUWD to better monitor springflow levels of the Comal Springs and Comal River by including runoff from the two creeks and subtracting their flows This can give a more accurate measurement of the flow coming from the Comal Springs only This provides more accurate infor said Dr Kenneth Ikels a Comal County resident and member of the EUWD board Its a better way to measure the springflow It gives a cubic foot per second reading rather than the J17 The EUWD currently reads aquifer levels at the J17 well at Fort Sam Houston A courtappointed water monitor Aug 1 offered an emergency plan to limit pumping when the aquifer reaches certain levels He based reduc tions however on springflow levels not levels of the J17 well Thus there is a shift toward New Braunfels as the key monitoring point Kenneth Ikels We will know when theres flow and how said Bader The gauges areriartofaneV work being installed by the EUWD and the Geologic Survey across ten counties in the Edwards recharge zone Both streamflow and precipftaf tion gauges will be installed out the region with priority going to the gauges on the two local The gauges will be connected via radio signals to the EUWD office where officials will be able to track flow levels or possible flooding at1 the time its happening according ta Bader We will be able to track thk movement of he said Wellj be able to track all the stations includ ing the amount of Bader said this can also help predict where flooding could possibly occur by monitoring rainfall and rivwLOfc creek levels throughout the region Thekgency will also be better able to monitor the amount of recharge he said The network once completed will also include a link with the National Weather Service station in New Braun fels better enabling them to monitpr weather activities including storms Defeat of Applewhite puts things back into limbo for springs By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer The defeat of the Applewhite Reservoir by San Antonio voters once again puts the issue of water sources namely determining how to better manage those of the Edwards Aquifer into ques tion Obviously Im disappointed 2050 didnt said county water negotiator Doug Miller It would have been a good faith effort on San Antonios The focus now shifts on other measures to prevent the level of springs in both New Braun fels and San Marcos from dropping to dangerous levels during dry periods A federal judge has ordered a water monitor to devise a plan for pumping reductions should lows levels be reached which he has done The judge however has not acted on the plan Opponents of Applewhite said measures such as augmentation and recharge dams could be used to replenish the aquifer The Edwards Under ground Water District currently operates four recharge dams and is studying the possibility of augmentation Another alternative to pumping the aquifer is developing a source of surface water The GuadalupeBlanco River Authority sells water from the Guadalupe River including Canyon Lake to various entities David Welsch director of planning and devel opment for the agency said the GBRA currently has contracts with cities such as New Braunfels Seguin and Port Lavaca but not San Antonio GBRA officials have said they are willing to look at supplying San Antonio with some water but could not solve the citys problem We can help and we intend to believe we can play a major said Welsch Welsch said results of a TransTexas Water Study would be available within three to four weeks He said these results would show how much and at what locations the GBRA could provide water And the Texas Legislature will once again convene in January Miller said water issues would no doubt be part of the discussions Theyll be all kinds of people trying to change things unfortunately to the detriment of Comal he said independent Bisect Board of Trustees Tuesday rjight in a board elects officers tjon of
