Facing a dry Comal Springs by the year 2010, City Council Monday night heard a report on the “study to end all studies” being conducted by the Edwards Underground Water District and the city of San Antonio.
Craig Hollmig, one of New Braunfels’ three directors on the EUWD board, told Council that the springs will be “intermittently dry” before that, especially during times of drought.
Hollmig and fellow director Kenneth Ikels talked to Council Monday in an effort to inform that group of the goings on at the Edwards office.
The directors (Carroll Hoffmann was absent) urged Council to work with other governmental entities to find solutions to an impending water shortage.
The regional water study’s project manager will provide a "step-by-step cookbook method” of specific solutions to water shortage, Hollmig said.
There are structural solutions, such as reservoirs, Hollmig said, and non-structural solutions, such as recycling, legislation, conservation, and pumping controls.
Hollmig said the study also will address alternate forms of project financing, with a “if you use it, you pay for it” point of view. "It will hopefully spread the cost so thin it will be palatable to everyone,” Hollmig said.
He added that a city that does nothing to prepare for water use growth and “pumps the springs dry will leave itself open to litigation.
"What got everyone moving9’’ he asked. “The certainty that the springs will go dry. And. < the fact that) the litigation that will follow from loss and damage will be tremendous.”
CISD teachers are experimenting
Comal ISD science teachers will be “experimenting” all week at Canyon Middle School.
The experiments will come from Dina Zyke, an elementary school consultant in the areas of science and social studies.
She will conduct an in-service program from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Friday for CISD science
teachers kindergarten through sixth grade.
Program goals include developing an activity-oriented elementary science program, becoming familiar with district instructional resources, and practicing a variety of teaching techniques.
Participants will design and perform activities and experiments in life, physical and earth sciences;
develop classroom organization techniques designed* to create an optimal learning environment; and relate science activities and experiments to the use of the scientific method and data-collecting activities.
Chad Hall, CISD math-science coordinator, will supervise the science institute, conducted by the district’s Division of Curriculum.
A hurricane watch was in effect today from Port Arthur eastward to Mobile, Ala. as Tropical Storm Danny continued to move northwestward in the Gulf of Mexico.
The National Hurricane Center also warned that small craft along the Texas coast should remain in or near port today.
The storm’s location at 5 a m. today was near latitude 25.0 north and longitude 89.8 west or about 350 miles south of New Orleans.
Forecasters said they expected the storm to continue its present court at 10-15 mph for the next 12 hours and said they expected it to turn to a more northerly direction later today.
Although the storm was far out in the gulf, forecasters said the central and upper Texas coast would likely start feeling some effects of the storm later today or tonight.
Elsewhere, forecasts called for clear to partly cloudy skies, slightly cooler temperatures and scattered showers and thunderstorms over most of the state today, with most of the thunderstorm activity expected late this afternoon and tonight. Highs were to be mostly in the 90s. Ix>ws tonight will again be mostly in the 60s and 70s. Highs Thursday will be in the 80s and 90s.
A weak stationary front stretched early today from near Wichita Falls to the Big Bend area and an upper level disturbance was located over eastern New Mexico.
These systems resulted in cloudy skies over most of West Texas and thunderstorms were reported at dawn in the eastern Par handle and northern portions of the South Plains.
A flash flood watch issued late Tuesday for the Panhandle and Big Bend areas expired early today without any serious reports of flash flooding, the National Weather Service said. But forecasters warned of the possibility of heavy rain later
today and said it was possible another flash flood watch nught have to be issued.
Elsewhere, some light fog was reported early today rn Southeast Texas and small patches of clouds dotted South Central Texas. The rest of the state has clear skies.
Early morning temperatures were mostly in the 70s except in the Panhandle, South Plains and Trans-

Ikels reported on the cloud seeding program and on conservation. “Since there are no surface water projects at this time, there are only two options — one is cloud seeding and two is conservation," he said.
“We are actively engaged in a (conservation) program," Ikels said. "The inch worm program, where you water your lawn one inch per week, and xeriscape planning."
Ikels pointed out that “conservation is not going to w ork unless we change our attitude.”

— discussed a request from Jack Krueger to put a conduit under Academy Street connecting two computer terminals for his car business.
