MICHAEL DARNALL Justice Dept objects to 94 EUWD vote Preclearing EUWDs election for two Bexar posts draws fire From staff reports In a letter dated March the United States Department of Justice DOJ objected to preclearing the Edwards Underground Water District EUWD Nov 8 1994 election for two director positions in Bexar Coun ty The basis for DOJs objection was the temporary use of punch card bal lots and related procedures The Bexar County Elections Depart ment was contracted by the EUWD to conduct election services for the Nov 8 election The county insisted on using separate punch card ballots In the letter DOJ noted that the county represented it would implement train ing programs and provide publicity to ensure that voters were aware of the EUWD election The letter further states that investigation reveals that the county does not appear to have taken even the most basic steps to pre vent confusion among poll officials and ensure voter participation in the Edwards Last Friday the EUWD Board vot ed not to seat the two new Bexar County members and to hold over the existing directors in anticipation of this decision from DOJ Walter G Barfield elected from precinct three and Susan Hughes elected from precinct 5 were to have been sworn in as new directors at a special board meeting on March 1 1995 Dr Ken neth G Ikels Comal County and Ms Kaylene Ray Hays County were sworn in as scheduled March 1 as DOJ had previously precleared the EUWDs Nov 1994 director elections in these two counties Ms Jerri W Martin Chair EUWD Board of Directors stated that the board must now meet to consider all available options We will schedule a special meeting of the board next week to discuss our options and a possible course of action in response to DOJs If you would like a complete copy of the March 2 DOJ letter please con tact Velma R Danielson at 210222 2204 V I 7 H Development may be threating aquifer recharge Bulverde resident says new water district can help protect recharge By CRAIG rMMMETT Staff Writer s BULVERDE Is the increase in building activity endangering the availability of water in the western parts of Comal County It is if builders cover up recharge holes says one resident Cameron Wiley of Bulverde just happens to be a proponent of an underground water district set for election this spring Wiley thinks a district can help with what he calls the key component to stop the cover ing of recharge holeseducation Thats the whole idea maybe we can educate he said youre closing it aquifer holes off youre cutting your own Wiley said he has seen no specific activities where developers are clos ing in or filling these holes but said he has heard of such activity and oth er misuse among landowners The recharge holes cover both the Edwards and Trinity aquifer regions In the porous limestone formations of the Hill Country rainwater filters into the aquifers through these holes Presently no laws prevent people from filling these holes in Some developers are filling these in because they dont look he said ought to have enough community spirit not County Engineer Tom Hornseth said the county has no authority over subdivision building regarding sink holes He did mention one case where a developer was forced to build a different road to avoid pollu tion near a hole Also another devel opment near Hwy 281 and the Guadalupe River changed road plans in order to avoid any future conflict with a cave opening Michael Albach is an environmen tal scientist with the Edwards Under ground Water District whose recharge area covers that in Comal County not included in the proposed water district Albach said the EUWD will look at subdivision Submitted photo A recharge hole on the property of Cameron Wiley is believed to feed the Trinity Aquifer specifics and recommend to the Texas Natural Resource Conserva tion Commission for approval The TNRCC approves all subdivision building over the Edwards but not the Glen Rose and Trinity forma tions The TNRCC rules do not prohibit closure of sinkholes or he said Albach said on occasion the TNR CC will not allow a subdivision plan to pass He said they tend however to concentrate more on water quality when reviewing building specifica tions than water quantity lost by cov ering up a sinkhole or cave The EUWD would like water quality and quantity to have equal importance Albach did say a relatively small amount of recharge is gained through these surface sinkholes and caves Creeks supply most of the recharge and most of this at least for the Edwards lies in the Nueces Basin About 40 percent lies in the San AntonioGuadalupe River Basin He did say the Trinity Aquifer which covers much of western Comal County has little if any regu lation over building or recharge All the notoriety is always on the Edwards Wiley said have no authority The next best thing is New pill will help control pets flea problems By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer Those infernal fleas they just cant be stopped r until now Its not avail able just yet but a drug will soon be on the market that will revolutionize flea control for pets Named the drug was developed by Ciba Animal Health and recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration They tell me I should get it the first week of said Dr Kent Fisch er of the Fischer Veterinary Clinic The cat version of Program wont be available until May or later Ive just heard its coming for the cat said Fischer Cat people are just going to have to be a little I can tell you it said Dr Gary Brotze of the Creekview Veteri nary Clinic Creekview has been a part of a study of Program combined with another pet medicine said Brotze Fleas on the test animals were counted periodically and in a few months the flea count dropped from hundreds to almost zero This has to be the best thing Ive seen in 14 years of said Fis cher The active ingredient in the new drug is a chemical culled lunfenuron Its not an insecticide but a growth inhibitor said Fischer Program pre vents flea eggs from developing Eggs and larvae make up 92 percent of the flea said Fischer The only drawback to Program is that it doesnt kill adult fleas said Fis cher Pet owners will still have to spray occasionally to keep the adults he said but by giving the tablet the need for washing dips down your drain will drop Program works by keeping a chem ical called chitin from forming in the flea eggs Insects need chitin to devel op But dogs dont have chitin cats dont have said Brotze so it doesnt hurt This is not a toxic insecticide said Fischer All dogs over six weeks of age are safe nursing dogs pregnant Program has been used in Europe since 1990 with no ill effects said Brotze There are no contraindications or side effects on the he said Program will come in pill form for dogs and in liquid form for cats It would cost about a year to use Thats a cost similar to heart worm control said Brotze A dose is required once a month said Brotze hi this area well have to keep it going year he said The pills come in packages of six said Fis cher Brotze cautions that viable fleas can still be introduced into yards by untreat ed animals Once treatment starts he recommends that only animals treated with Program be let in the house Call 6259144 for subscription news or advertising information
