Monitor calls for cuts on pumping By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer A federally-appointed water monitor called for cuts in pumping of the Edwards Aquifer and the registering of wells as part of an emergency management plan Monday. Joe G. Moore, appointed as a water monitor by Senior U.S. District Judge Lucius Bunton in, presented his plan to Bunton to manage the Edwards and prevent Comal Springs from going dry in periods of drought or dry weather. Burton can use this report as a consideration in the ongoing lawsuit filed by the Sierra Club several years ago, cit which the city of New Braunfels was an intervener. Moore met with local representatives last week in a preview of the plan, which calls for voluntary and mandatory reductions in pumping when the Comal Springs’ flow reaches 250 cubic feet per seoond and below. . .    ~—*— ....... Doug Miller, water negotiator for Comal County and New Braunfels, said Moore discussed the correlation between measuring units of the Edwards and Comal springflow. "He (Moore) sud, ‘How do we know the correlation is going to hold?"' said Miller. "We've noticed the spring flow correlation between the J-17 well (al Fort Sam Houston) and the spring flow has danged." Miller said tracking the aquifer level at Fort Sam Houston may not detomine just how much in danger; spring flow is. He said some of the larger free-flowing v^lls, like one at Sam Houston, have been repped and the city of New Braunfels now uses surface water. Another key point would have Edwards weil-useR register with the state so tho pumping could be monitored. Miller Mid this point was brought up before foe state legislature in the last season but was quickly hushed That was talked about back in 1993,” Ire aid. “We need to identify who is taking what" Miller said that any entity, business or person, selling water nxm register with the state. Other than that, certain larger pumping operations can pump water without reporting their usage.
