water or land near you can they be held respon sible That is what county officials wanted to know Thursday as they listened to officials from the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commis sion The officials from the TNRCC were explaining the aspects of a Water Pollution Abatement Plan something people who are planning to build on a site over the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone must present to the state to show their building project will not pollute things The problem often is however that people dont bother to fill out the form which carries a fee and send it in And the state with limited staff is often handicapped in their enforcement efforts If youre not going to enforce a rule why have one asked Commissioner Danny Scheel People tell me if we have the rule enforce added County Judge Carter Casteel Scheel said he has lived in this county all his life has bought and sold property built things and had never even heard of a WPAP State officials say that is part of the problem We are trying to get the word out what the rule said Richard Garcia regional manager of the San Antonio office If you as a resident dont know what the rule is how are you going to vio late The TNRCC can fine people who build on a site of five acres or less as much as a day if they choose to pursue action But they rarely do in the case of individual home owners The course now is to proactively work with

in the form of a Bulverde resident whom she says the county has been trying to stop for four years The TNRCC can fine people for violating pol lution control but say the small cases often become entangled in the courts as this particular case has Although the county cannot regulate the spac ing of wells they can with septic tanks and the county does have rules against junked vehicles Pollution also can be monitored under solid waste codes The problem has been enforcement The county has hired an environmental attorney to help in that area something that is expected to begin quickly When we get that going its really going to said Environmental Health Officer Moni ca Wallace The TNRCC said in the area of water pollution they can more easily enforce rules that have been around longer regardless if they are over the Caldwell TNRCC water pro gram manager said ccmpanies for instance that are going to build must receive a permit explain ing what they are going to do if they use water or if groundwater could be affected You have to tell us what you are going to do with the water Edwards or he said Some residents in Bulverde were recently con cerned when a company planned to
