GBRA considers water transfers
By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND
Guadalupe Blanco River Authority board of directors met Wednesday at Tapatio Springs Resort in Boerne to consider contracts for interbasin transfers.
The board approved two adjustments to the ongoing contract negotiations under which GBRA would provide water to Bexar County and the western portions of Comal, Guadalupe and Kendall counties. The contracts being developed are the first out-of-district temporary water agreements in GBRA history.
The board voted to include clauses in the agreements that:
1) state GBRA would supply water only to certified area suppliers, not individual homes; and
2) state those certified suppliers must have water conservation plans in place that GBRA approves.
Under the contract, a large portion of the water
GBRA pumps to Bexar County would be a “returnable supply.”
In other words, the amount of water transferred to Bexar County will decrease over time. As time passes, Comal, Kendall and Guadalupe Counties will need more water because of growth. Also as time passes, GBRA assumes Bexar County will have developed alternate water sources, according to GBRA manager of communications and education Judy Gardner.
Board members heard a report about the Seco Creek Water Quality Demonstration Project by Larry M. Allen.
The project studies and tests the effects of brush management on groundwater supply.
Allen said the Seco Creek Project found that eradicating cedar elm trees over large areas could significantly increase the available ground water supply.
The Seco Creek Project is under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Traffic coming from Gruene Road would be free to turn north on Hunter Road, according to the proposal.
Gruene merchants don’t see the point in making Hunter Road a oneway street, either.
“It would hamper our business,” said Keith Kohlenberg, a manager at Adobe Cafe who also works at
Adobe Verde in GrueneL “We don’t see any benefit for us. We would be against that.”
Hunter Road carries 2,000 to 3,000 cars driving both ways on a busy summer day, according to Grist Mill manager Greg Trcka. One-way traffic would impede not only Gruene tourists but Gruene business people as well, he said.
“Approximately 95 percent of our employees come down that road,”
said Trcka, from the San Marcos direction, he said. “It (a one-way road) would put a kink in that,” he
Although the request doesn’t seem practical to business owners, city officials said they would consider it.
“Every board has an obligation to hear citizens’ proposals,” said Don Ferguson, who staffs the Transportation and Traffic Advisory Board.
