to town this weekend The fountain destroyed by an acci dent involving a reported drunken dri ver in November is scheduled to return to its home on the Plaza Sun day Iris Schumann who works with the Sophienburg Archives said the foun tain has been restored once again and will sit in the center of town just in time for the beginning of many Sesquicentcnnial events through the year The main thing is it is she said I still say it is a unifying symbol of our City Parks and Recreation Direc tor David Whatley said a crane from Word Construction will begin setting the several pieces Monday afternoon Tuesday other work including repairs of the outer pool wall and painting will start Whatley said the entire project will take one to two weeks to finish Adjustments must be made with the water flow before the fountain can work completely Ott Plumbing will also be working with the project which paid through the citys insurance The nearly one hundredyearold fountain was first restored and returned to the Plaza in April of 1994 but was then shattered in the latenight accident in November Robinson Iron the company from Alabama who restored the foun tain the first time repaired the fountain again Schumann said they first thought the fountain would not be ready before April Now the fountain will be working for the many Sesquicentennial events including Founders Day March 21 Thats one reason we moved all the pieces out so said What ley We were hoping to meet that April EUWD nearing completion of rain streamflow gauge project By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer In May of 1972 12 inches of ruin fell between New Braunfels and Canyon Lake within an hour The resulting Hood waters of the Guadalupc killed more than a people that fateful night Such disasters will hopefully never happen again and new measures taken by the Edwards Underground Water District will help toward that goal The EUWD has nearly completed work installing almost 100 rain and streamtlow gauges throughout the county said Bobby Badcr EUWD Director of Field Operations The gauges can measure both stieamilow and rainfall and send the information back to the EUWD office every 15 minutes Were getting data back he said They will give us the rate of intensity of water flow or Badcr said the National Weather Ser vice in New Braunfels will use infor mation gathered from the gauges as can many other agencies Individual counties arc very much interested in flood said Bad er Lowwater crossings throughout the county can become flooded veiy quick ly by sudden storm bursts These gauges will allow officials at EUWD headquarters to track them Several years ago a busload of chil dren on vacation were swept away by the raging Guadalupc River near Com fort The Upper Guadalupe now has a similar gauge system in place Bader said once the system is in full opera tion school superintendents fire mar shalls and sheriffs will all be notified of high water readings There arc also other programs the EUWD plans to use Another part of the system includes establishing a net work of wells in the aquifer that can be monitored This will allow scientists to track the movement of undcrgrourd water after rainfall enters the recharge zone something that has been very hard to do in the past Badcr said this will enable the EUWD to study the effects of rainfall over the aquifer Also gauges will be set up in New Braunfels at the smaller creeks By measuring runoff from these smaller creeks officials can subtract the amount from the flow of Comal Springs and obtain a more accurate reading Comal County
