is key to monitors proposal By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer A federal water monitor has formulated a plan which he will present to a federal judge later this spring The plan calls for various steps to ensure the Comal and San Marcos Springs remain flowing for generations to come including transferring Guadalupe River water to San Antonio Joe G Moore the water monitor called bringing surface water to San Antonio in order to reduce the need for pumping a key part of the process One part of the proposal has acrefeet of water being pumped from Lake Dunlap to the suburbs north of San Antonio Lake Dunlap to San Antonio that would be the said Moore who said growth increases the demand on the aquifer just put more and more strain on the aquifer There will only be enough water if surface water is brought to the Edwards Aquifer Steps already in place make this part very feasible The Canyon Regional Water Authority already operates a water treatment facility at Lake Dunlap The authoritys David Davenport said they are already planning a pipeline to run into the area The San Antonio Water System could basically buy off of he said The Bexar Metropolitan Water District is already a member as are several other districts Although no agreements have been made Davenport believes the water is available One acrefoot of water equals gallons enough to supply one average size family for a year In addition to the acrefeet from Lake Dunlap the proposal also calls for another from the Guadalupe River and the CarrizoWilcox Aquifer near Gonzales being sent to San Antonio via a water treatment plant near Marion GuadalupeBlanco River Authority officials say it can be done Its a doable said General Manager Bill West is something we could get to fairly quickly Gonzales would be more long West said one staterun study called the TransTexas says there is enough water It will not be a burden on the Guadalupe he said Another component of the plan calls for the Lower Colorado River Authority to supplement lost water from the Guadalupe by pumping about acrefeet from the Colorado River near Smithville to the Guadalupe The LCRA says not so fast Our policy hasnt changed We did not support what was proposed in the TransTexas plan either Our policy is we oppose it unless it benefits our said LCRA Public Information Officer Bill McCann We oppose any transfer that does not benefit our Chamber turns attention to historic underpasses By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer The Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors met yesterday and discussed improvements on the South Seguin Avenue underpass and Landa Street overpass The Texas Department of Transportation has allocated funds for the two projects Weve still got a serious problem in our town in that tour bus es cant get around in this said chamber President Tom Purdum Were still laying the groundwork on the said Greg Malatek of the TXDOT The Seguin underpass will cost approximately million and the Landa overpass will come in at around million New Braunfels will have to pay only a small portion of the construction costs said City Manager Mike Shands The city has money set aside but the state could block improvements if they get in the way of historic said Shands Outside of preservation societies no one has worked harder than the chamber for historic preser vation but the improvements are sorely needed said Transportation Committee Chairman Bobbie Hasert Construction on the projects will not begin for some time with bids due out in 1998 In other business Chair of the Board Carter Casteel pointed out the early school opening dates on the ballot for the upcoming NB1SD Board meet ing She urged Chamber Board members to lobby for later school openings to maximize the time New Braunfels can benefit from tourist
