New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 1, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 2 O HeraldZeltung o Tuesday October Water consumers still studying pipeline By DAVID OEKUNDER Staff Writer The GuadalupeBlanco River Authority and the city of San Marcos are still working toward development of a joint regional water surface treatment plant at a cost of million to million GBRA General Manager Bill West said Monday It is a matter of time before the project West said In April GBRA and San Marcos approved an interlocal agreement to transfer water from Canyon Lake by pipeline to the San Marcos treatment plant Under that agreement GBRA would build the raw water intake and pipeline to the treatment plant The water from Canyon Lake would flow to the Guadalupe River to Lake Dunlap and through the pipeline to the San Marcos water treatment plant One off the options thoy BartonEdwards Underground Water District are is buying Into the pipeline then later on buying into the expansion of the treatment Bill West GBRA general manager The water treatment plant is scheduled to begin operations by the summer of 1999 West has been trying to get entities in Caldwell and Hays counties to sign letters of intent and participate in the project Those entities are the of Kyle the Maxwell Water Supply CorpM the Martindale Water Supply the County Line Water Supply Southwest Texas State University and the BartonEdwards Underground Water District West said those parties are still studying their options for getting involved in a regional surface water treatment plant They are still scratching their West said They are still contemplating West said he will meet tonight with the Kyle city council West met last week with officials from the BartonEdwards Underground Water District which is located in northern Hays County to discuss the Edwards Aquifer They indicated interest in the West said One of the options they are exploring is buying into the pipeline then later on buying into the expansion of the treatment That would mean sharing in the costs of the pipeline being built between Lake Dunlap and the water surface treatment plant to be located in the San Marcos area The city is still looking for possible sites for the water treatment plant A bond issue passed by San Marcos voters in 1990 is financing the plants construction In 1989 San Marcos signed a contract with GBRA for acre feet of water from Canyon Lake which San Marcos started paying for in 1995 If the city can settle water rights issues with the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission expansion of the San Marcos water treatment plant would enable Hays County to get up to acre feet of water from Canyon Lake by 2040 West said giving interested parties an option to share the costs of the pipeline is a start At least if they participate in sharing in the costs of the pipeline then in a year or two they could participate in the expansion of the treatment he said Obituaries nfljf rnnmnNrj Ray Phinney

to see if they conceal any financial misdeeds against victims of the Nazi Holocaust The 163member lower house voted unanimously Monday in favor of creating an independent commission to investigate the Swiss banks role during the Holocaust The bill was proposed after massive international pressure The entire moral reputation of our country is at said Lili Nabholz a key sponsor The facts must not be suppressed but be laid once and for all on the table What we are doing today we are doing late But it isnt too The upper house is expected to approve the law in December and Foreign Minister Flavio

Muslim Croat and Serb leaders whose differing visions for Bosnia led to war agreed at their first meeting as joint presidents to work together for peace Bosnias newly elected triumvirate confirmed its commitment Monday to defending the constitution of Bosnia a statement that implies that the Serb leader has at least for now given up his struggle for secession The statement at the first meeting of what promises to be a fractious joint presidency offered hope to international mediators who said the fact that it even took place was significant in itself The new copresidents have huge differences to resolve It was unclear how much they could agree on or how they would build the loose national government that is supposed to rule this bitterly divided country Muslim leader Alija Izetbegovic Serb

for this NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin said Monday in announcing the billion sixyear contract with United Space Alliance a joint venture of Rockwell International Corp and Lockheed Martin Corp Officials promise the shift will be gradual with shuttle flight safety the No 1 priority In the short term not even NASA and its contract workers will see much difference NASA still will give the final go for launch and make the important decisions during a flight as it has for the past 15 years It will retain ultimate responsibility for safety and hire the astronauts and it will still own the four shuttles But it will ease itself out of the routine daytoday work such as preparing the shuttles training the and operating Mission Rally From Page 1 public hearing on its proposed emergency

drought management plan for the aquifer EAA representatives from primarily Bexar County were successful in making changes to the previous emergency rules on Aug 17 The changes raised the maximum
