New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 21, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas 2A Q HeraldZeitung g Thursday August Oh I wish I Anthony Kolbe looks at the giant welner on wheels parked next Mr Gattls Weinermobile drove through New Braunfels on its way to Houston GBRA From Page 1 water supply The GBRA board will vote on final approval of the contract in September Before the board approved the contract some concerns were raised by board member Wanda Roberts I have a problem shipping water out of Roberts said Senate Bill I says we cant do this How do you reconcile that Roberts was referring to a provision in Senate Bill I restricting the way interbasin transfers are conducted If GBRA approves the final water contract water rights would be transferred from the Guadalupe River basin to the San Antonio River basin in Bexar County Senate Bill 1 requires a right or a portion of a right transformed during an interbasin transfer shall be junior to all other rights in the basin of origin In other words water rights purchased in the Guadalupe River basin by out of basin customers would be secondary to water rights of industries and users who live in the Guadalupe River basin Parts of the San Antonio River basin are in western Guadalupe County The cities and portions of Schertz Marion Cibolo GVSUD and ECWSC are in that river basin GBRA deputy general manager Fred Blumberg said the interbasin transfer provision may not apply to the CRWA contract since GBRA will be selling the water rights for a 20year period instead of transferring them into the San Antonio River basin The way we view this as a sale of water rights not a transfer of water said CRWA general counsel Louis Rosenberg This clearly leaves GBRAs water right Under the contract Bexar Met would get the largest amount of water acre feet per year The board also put off a preliminary agreement about the proposed pipeline from Canyon Lake to Bexar County The pipeline would serve western Comal County and northern Bexar County It would carry water to the Canyon Lake Water Supply Corporation Bexar Metro Fair Oaks the San Antonio River Authority and possibly Boenie The pipeline would serve about households each in Bexar and Coma counties Under the proposed plan an 8 million gallon per day surface water treatment plant would be built at Canyon Lake It would treat about acre feet per year of Canyon Lake water The water would be treated at the proposed surface water plant The water that would be used in Canyon Lake is stored water Canyon Lake already provides acre feet of water yearly with acre feet gbing to downstream users GBRA general manager Bill West told the board he would meet with potential customers in Bulverde and Bexar County within the next few days about the pipeline West said issues such as rates among outofdistrict customers and the legality of Senate Bill 1 still needed to be examined TODAYS CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACROSS 1 Hospital area 5 Clan of the Cave Bear heroine 9
