Braunfels SUNDAY 40 Pages in four sections Sunday July Serving Comal County for more 3r more than 143 years Home of CHESTER AND CLARA NOLTE Vol 143 No 181 County burn ban looms By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Residents living in unincorporated areas of Comal County may find themselves being banned from burning open fires in an effort to limit the number and severity of possible fires Weve had a few fires but luckily nothing real bad If we dont do something we could see a lot said Comal County Fire Marshal Milton Willman Willman said there has not been any significant rain since the Fourth of July weekend and areas in the west ern part of the county have become very dry An Emer gency Management Order issued by the County Judge may be needed in the next five to seven days to prevent grass fires County Judge Carter Casteel said she can declare an emergency and enact the ban without having the com missioners court vote on it The order is taken before com missioners court for approval after the Willman said the order would apply to all unincorpo rated areas not under the jurisdiction of city municipali ties the Army Corps of Engineers or Texas Parks and Wildlife People would be able to have a fire in a bar becue pit however the order would ban open burning making it a class B misdemeanor Ive talked with some fire chiefs and theyre for it If we dont get some rain soon well be asking the county judge to declare the he said Casteel said she has not been asked to declare an emergency yet However if the fire marshal requests the order she will declare it without any questions When he tells me to do it I do it because hes the fire marshal and hes out there keeping an eye out for said Casteel Willman said if the ban is put into effect it would remain there until the weather conditions change at which time it could be lifted just as easily as it was put into place We would just go back and ask to have it he said EUWD adopts changes to water conservation plan By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer HeraldZeitung photos by MICHAEL DARNALL Getting their kicks At top Brett Riley owner of Westhaven Academy of Karate demonstrates his karate technique at Landa Park Saturday morning Above karate students show their stuff The demonstration drew black belts from across the country New Braunfels residents may soon be forced to conserve more water in nn attempt to protect the Edwards Aquifer during a drought or periods of high demand The Edwards Underground Water District approved changes to its Demand Management Plan DMP during Thursdays meeting The changes resulted from a compromise voluntary emergency withdrawal reduction agreement between a pan el of attorneys appointed by Federal Court Judge Lucious Bunton Bunion did not order the district to make changes However he did strongly urge the actions said Tim Young legal counsel for the district Like one board member said were just tinkering with what we already have in said General Manager Rick Illgner According to the changes the reductions will be triggered when water levels at the Bexar County Index Well J17 reach specific points The How at the Comal Springs will also be taken into con sideration The new plan applies to water suppliers municipalities and other nonindustrial and nonagricultural E dont want to leave any doubt that New Braunfels has been conserving Kenneth Ikels water users in Bexar Comal and Hays counties However these enti lies must use at least 18 million gal lons per day to be affected by the plan Its the first time we have the authority to go to Uvalde and Medi na and ask them to cut back 1 like said member of the board Jo Ann De Hoyos When water levels at J17 and spring flow levels reach a certain point a reduction stage will be declared At each stage the water users are allowed to take a percentage of their base usage Illgner said the base usage is the average use for the three lowest months between November and February 1995 However he said an amendment to the original proposed plan allows primary users that use surface water as a primary source and groundwater as a supple menial source to use a different aver These users which includes New Braunfels can use the average usage of groundwater for July August and September of 1994 The amendrncnr raised some ques tion regarding the conservation efforts of New Braunfels Illgner said that applying the same formula for figuring base usage to everyone would be unfair Comal County board representative Kenneth Ikels said the amendment does not mean less conservation He said the fact that New Braunfels even uses groundwater is a conservation method 1 dont want to leave any doubt that New Braunfels has been con serving water Theyre putting in acre feet every year guaranteed as long as the Canyon Lake Reser voir is Ikels said The board passed the DMP with a six to live vote The changes will go into effect on Aug 3 1995 and will automatically die at midnight on Dec 31 1995 Vice Chairman Hans Helland said there are several issues with the pro posal that still need to be considered He said the current plan encourages waste in the winter He also said the new plan takes away certain powers in the current DMP Thats something that needs to be looked at if its gong to be used in the Helland said Couple shares its African experiences with children By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer To Africa and back
