EUWD to install two new devices to track Comal Springs flow here
By CRAIG HAMMETT
Two new device! soon to be installed in New Braunfels by the Edwards Underground Waler District will shift the focus of monitoring the Edwards Aquifer to the city.
The EUWD plans to install two streamflow gauges, one at Dry Comal Creek and one at Bleeders Creek, by the end of November according to Fiekl Operations Director Bobby Bader.
The gauges will allow the EUWD to better monitor springflow levels of the Comal Springs and Comal River by including runoff from foe two creeks and subtracting their flows. This can give a more accurate measurement of the flow coming from the Comal Springs only.
“This provides more accurate information,” said Dr. Kenneth Heeia, a Comal County residers and member of the EUWD board “Ifs a batler way to measure the springfkyw. It gives a f per second reading rather
“We will know when there*! flow abd how much," arid *«■* Bader.

Defeat of Applewhite puts things back into limbo for springs
By CRAIG HAMMIT
The defeat of the Applewhite Reservoir by Sen Antonio voters once agrin puts the issue of wrier sources, reitaydeiermiitiig how to bettor manege too* of toe Edwards Aquifer, into question.
“Obviously, I’m disappointed 2030 didn't pap“ Mid county waler negotiator Doug Miller. “It would have been a good faith effort on San Antonio's part.**
The focus now shifts on other measures to
prevent the level of springs in both New Braunfels and San Manos ftom dropping to dugerous levels during dry periods.
A federal judge has ordered a waler monitor to devise a plan for pumping reductions fhnuid iowa levels be reached, which he has done. The judge, however, has not acted on the plan.
Opponents of Applewhite said measures such as augmentation and recharge dams could be veed to regienirii the aquifer. The Edwards Underground Water District currently operates four recharge fat and is studying tin possibility of augmcBtetion.
Another alternative to pumping the aquifer ii developing a source of surface water. The Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority sells wrier from the Guadalupe River, including Canyon I .§1^. to various entities.
DevidWalsch, director of planting and development for the agency, arid toe GBRA currendy fas contracts with cities such aa New Braunfels
Seguin, and Fort Lavaca, but not San Antonio. OBRA officials have mid they are willing t
look rimpplyiig San Aottxtio with some water, but qpuMI not solve tin city's problem.
“We can help and we intend to believe we can
play a major role,” retd Welsch.
Welach mid remits oft Ttene-Tex* Wrier Study would be available within three to tar weeks.
Ha arid these results would rinw “how rittfh and at wtwt locations’* the GBRA could psovide wrier.
And the Texas r^gfefe*upp will oms tgjtis convene in January. Miliy arid water issues would no doubt be part of toe dUcumtont.
“They’U beau kinds ofpeople tying to chaiga tfegp, unfatunridy to ta detriment of Coni Springs," he arid.
