WHAT FLOATS NEATH By Greg Bowen I he Heialcl-Zeituiig Picture in your mind New Braunfels' downtown M.vin Plaza coverc'd with beer cans and other litter |)iled thrc'c' and oire-half tc’et dee[i. ()i you could imagine a toolball field covered with trash to a dc'i)th ol two feet. Both scenarios amount to approxi-matelv 750,(HK) gallons of debris. That's thc> c'stimat-ed load of litter city offic iais are forcH,ast-ing they'll collect this tourist season from the city's (;omal and Guadalupe rivers, according to city Watershed Program Manager Nathan Pence. The forec ast is based on the 4'i2,995 gallons collc'cted from the* rivers through |uly 14. Pc'iice said 2011 year-to-date litter colk*cti()ns have already sur-passcxl season-lcing totals for 2009 (J90,28T gallons), 2008 (20.i,700 gallons) and 2007 (199,1 i8 gallons) and are nearing the 518,987 gallons collec ted during the entire sc'ason in 2010. "Ninety [)ercent of what we (oiled IS beer cans," Pence said. The astounding amount of litter dumped into th(> rivers by tubers has some c itizens wondering about the ecological damage being done to the ('omal and Guadalupe and calling for a )an on alcohol i( beverages because beer cans often cover the river bottoms after a busy wc'ekend. Estimated litter total for 2011 would cover the entire Main Plaza 3.64 feet deep. More tubers, better litter collection Pence attributCH:! the rising amount of litter to the increasing number of tubers visiting New Braunfels and to improvcMTients in litter-col Ic'ction efforts. "The more people you have on the rivc^rs, the more trash they are going to leave behind," he said. But Iitter-cc)llection has been much improved, too, he said.
