New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 18, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas 2A o HeraldZeitung o Thursday December GBRA considers water transfers By SUSAN FLYNTENGLAND News Editor Guadalupe Blanco River Authority board of directors met Wednesday at Tapatio Springs Resort in Boerne to consider contracts for interbasin transfers The board approved two adjustments to the ongoing contract negotiations under which GBRA would provide water to Bexar County and the western portions of Comal Guadalupe and Kendall counties The contracts being developed are the first outofdistrict temporary water agreements in GBRA history The board voted to include clauses in the agreements that 1 state GBRA would supply water only to certified area suppliers not individual homes and 2 state those certified suppliers must have water conservation plans in place that GBRA approves Under the contract a large portion of the water GBRA pumps to Bexar County would be a returnable In other words the amount of water transferred to Bexar County will decrease over time As time passes Comal Kendall and Guadalupe Counties will need more water because of growth Also as time passes GBRA assumes Bexar County will have developed alternate water sources according to GBRA manager of communications and education Judy Gardner Board members heard a report about the Seco Creek Water Quality Demonstration Project by Larry M Allen The project studies and tests the effects of brush management on groundwater supply Allen said the Seco Creek Project found that eradicating cedar elm trees over large areas could significantly increase the available ground water supply The Seco Creek Project is under the auspices of the Department of Agriculture and the Natural Resources Conservation Service Gruene From
