expanded to meet the needs of res idential development in the area GBRA combats algae in lake JIM By JANET GRAFE GazetteEnterprise GUADALUPE COUNTY Phosphorus helps plants grow which is a good thing for a lawn but not good when it causes an overgrowth of algae in area lakes Members of the Preserve Lake Dunlap Association PLDA are commending the GuadalupeBlanco River Authority GBRA for its plans to reduce phosphorus levels in treated water when the Lake Dunlap facility is expanded The phosphorus in treated wastewater pouring into Lake Dunlap sometimes causes a smelly buildup of vegetation in the lake especially in the sum mer when temperatures are high and water flow reduced said Danny Laroe PLDA board member Unfortunately GBRAs efforts may not help water condi tions at Lake Dunlap The New Braunfels Utility NBU wastewater treatment plant is the major source of phos phorus from effluent in the lake while the treated water from the GBRA facility is usually piped to the Texas Independent Energy plant in Marion to use for cool ing water When the energy plant is not running the wastewater may be discharged into the lake so GBRA decided to treat the water to the higher standard said Debbie Magin director of water quality services GBRA Page 7A Index TV C Todays Weather Mostly Sunny Precip 0 Humidity 33 FiveDay Outlook Monday Partly Cloudy Precip 10 Tuesday Partly
