Arthur Eggemeyer, chairman of the Runnels Soil and Water Conservation District; Hugo - Vogelsan, chairman of the Valley Creek Water Control District; David Ledbetter, chairman of the Elm Creek Water Control District and Gruizin, outgoing chair-^ ' of the WiUow Creek Water District all expressed eoncern over the change rMwmnwnded by the Texiis Society Af Professional Ettgi-neers and the Texu Section of :ti>e Americmn Society of CivU Engineers. The Societies also Engineers. The Scoi«Vies also recommend that surface are of ponds should not exceed two acres unless the landowner has a permit to do so. The Societies have published a brochure, "Now You See It-Now You Don't, summarizing their recent study of water loss in Texas. Local leaders disagree with many points brought out in the brochure. Several members of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers have been contacted and they said they had no knowledge of the brochure until after it was published. The existing Texas Water Code. Section 5.140, sUtes that without obtaining a permit, a person may construct on his own property a dam or reservoir to impound or contain not more than 200 acre-feet of water for domestic and livestock purposes. The local leaders are strongly opposed to legislation changing the existing law, as they feel if a permit could indeed be obtained it would be expensive, time consuming and only add to the cumbersome red tape ab«ady involved in implementing flood contrpl projects. If the present state law is changed to what the societies are r^mmending, it would not oitily affect watershed projects but all persons planning to construct any impoundment over 10 acre feet capactiy and ponds with a surface area over 2 acres. At this time the bill has not been introduced in the Texas Legislature but it is expected to be in the near future.
