Department of Agriculture seeking to end subsidies it calls economically ful and ecologically The subsidies benefit farmers who irrigate crops with water from the Edwards Aquifer The USDA spends million in taxpayers mon ey each year subsidizing Edwards pumping by big Ken Kramer director of the clubs Texas chapter It threatens to poison San Antonios water sup plies It threatens to ruin the tourism economies in New Braunfels and San Marcos which are far more valuable than say sorghum for hog Kramer said It also threatens to kill off irreplaceable endan gered Jim Pcrterson deputy press secretary at the USDA in Washington said he was unaware of the lawsuit and had no comment The lawsuit claims the USDA is violating four federal laws that require the department to develop and carry out plans and programs to prevent subsi dized irrigation practices from poisoning human water supplies and killing wildlife It threatens to poison San Antonios water supply It threatens to ruin the tourism economies in New Braunfels and San Marcos which are far more valuable than say sorghum for hog feed It also threatens to kill off irreplaceable endan gered Ken Kramer on pumping the aquifer for irri gation The USDA needs to obey the Kramer said The aquifer is the sole source of drinking water for San Antonio and it feeds the natural springs in New Braunfels and San Marcos that many tourists visit The lawsuit targets subsidized farms in Bcxar Medina and Uvaldc counties We arc not singling out individual agricultural users and filing suit against them We arc filing suit against a federal agency for what we consider to be an ineffective and inappropriate the part of that Kramer said Pete Schcnkkan one of the attorneys who filed the suit said irrigation of the crops grown in those coun ties was unnecessary He said more acres arc culti vated in all three counties without irrigation The lawsuit claims the USDA has failed or refused to pursue reasonable and prudent alterna tives to economically wasteful and ecologically destructive irrigation agriculture in the counties Schcnkkan advocated irrigation systems more effi cient than a standard sprinkler method If the federal government decides it needs to sub sidize irrigation of cotton in Uvaldc County how about putting the money behind farmers who will install drip irrigation systems and save most of the water that is presently being used Schcnkkan said Drip irrigation uses less water and directs it toward a specific area The Offices of Stolte CPA Jo Lynn Timmermann CPA and Trade Center MiniStorage have
