newspaper is printed on recycled newsprint als say snails are answ ByMARKLYON Managing Editor The latest of several theories to solve San Antonios water problems this one dealing with the control of snails in Landa Lake have some local water officials scratching their heads A meeting held Friday in San Antonio which consisted of a new water panel and courtappoint ed water monitor Joe Moore saw discussion on the giant ramshom snail now found in Cornal and San Marcos springs after being introduced there by aquarium hobbyists in the early 1980s The snails experienced a population explosion in 1989 when the spring flows dropped to alarming rates At that time snails were able to reach more veg etation and food without having to work against strong spring flows which normally keep them from it Discussion centered around the control of the snails could allow for lower spring flows at Comal Springs as low as 150 and 60 cubic feet per second The theory indicates that controlling the snail population in Landa Lake would open the door for more available water for San Theory on controlling to free up more Water nio Those are only temporary said Doug Miller water negotiator for Comal Coun ty and New Braunfels Utilities Instead of work ing together to come up with ways to solve these aquifer problems were trying to circumvent Judge Bunions ruling by looking at ways to take down Comal

DiFonzo DiFonzo said the snails and ways to enable lower spring flows were discussed Friday but also said that no one could offer ideas on control mea sures Im not sure anyone knows how to control

plan in place Hopefully well get assurances We must count on Judge Bunions direction for Some people in San Antonio are calling these meetings section meetings and that is not what they are said Miller These are meetings are to discuss surface water and ways to which we can abide by Judge Lucious Bunions Section is the term used for an exemption in the federal Endangered Species Act where under certain conditions the spring flows at Comal and San Marcos springs will be allowed to dip under restricted levels with a recovery plan in place Illgner general manager for the Edwards Underground Water District has said that snail control could be San Antonios cheapesi water He has said that successful management of the snails could yield an extra 0f water every month Any time you hear cheap water and howit will save San that is a problem and weve been fighting it from dayone San Anto nio is trying to circumvent Judge Bunions order and Senate Bill Removing the snailsfrom LandaLake and Comal Springs would be no small task according to David Whately Director of New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department It has been suggested that we put 500 diyep in Landa Lake and let them physically take the snails out But according to the Fish Wildlife Department that could do more harm than gopd by throwing the ecological system out of Y Other members of the water panel
