participate in the program I was hoping for more but I wasnt Miller said he believes from four to five Comal and Guadalupe purveyors already have pledged a total of to the program Miller said San Antonio Water System has pledged and has indicated it could increase that to a maximum of million He also said Bcxar Metropolitan Water District has pledged and GuadalupeBlanco River Authority Miller told the board that he expects the program to need from million to million to implement based on bids of to per acre foot of land On Jan 13 the bids will be announced and participants in the program will have a representative to negotiate the final deal which the EAA board will consider on Jan 14 EAA board members have said the majority of interested land owners are corn fanners in Medina County The benefit for NBU trustees said would be increased aquifer flows through Comal Springs and a demonstration to other aquifer pumpers in the region that NBU is willing to be a part of a comprimise

pool to pay for the farmers bids The bids are rated according to certain criterion including location of the land promise to dryland farm and type of crops Organizers of the pilot program must garner at least acres of farmland from owners who then have the option to dryland farm for the next year Half of the water that is normally used by irrigation farmers would stay in the aquifer and the rest

city of New Braunfels is planning to begin a sixmonth pilot program this month that will offer recycling services to one apartment complex Organizers are finalizing the details of the plan in which an undisclosed apartment complex will offer a recycling dumpster for all its multifamily units The cost of the program is being paid for by the complex and the city will determine from the results of this test whether to continue it on a permanent basis Quite frankly it poses a tough challenge due to the nature of apartment said Don Ferguson assistant to the city manager The key in the whole process is education and letting residence know they shouldnt dump certain items in the recycling Currently the citys curbside recycling program is only offered to singlefamily homes for per month but many apartment complexes have requested the program recently Ferguson said The city council was scheduled to increase the fee this year but decided to freeze it Ferguson said the program will help the city determine whether to offer this type of service to other apartment complexes He said the potential problems are whether the recycling dumpstcrs become contaminated with non recyclable items Another problem is whether the owners or tenants should pay for the program if it becomes permanent He said the city received some large recycling bins from WalMart after it stopped its community recycling program and the city will use one of them for the pilot program HeraldZeit SvccinI From Page 1 provide quality services for residents She said the budgeting process always creates the
