New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 9, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas .Students and teachers on the Great River Run visited the GBRA ■Hydroelectric Plant at Canyon Dam as part of a day-long introduction to the use of water in the upper Guadalupe River basin. Natural river flows tare passed through turbines at the plant to create hydroelectricity and are then returned, clean and unpolluted, to the river, where they can •benefit other water users. Great River Run turns Guadalupe into an outdoor classroom Students and teachers from throughout the Guadalupe River basin recently completed a 4-day watershed outreach education tour designed to give them a greater understanding and appreciation of the state's water Resources and conservation programs. I The program is administered by the Texas Manne Advisor) Service and the Texas Sea Grant College Program (both part of the Texas A&M University System), and is sponsored locally by the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority (GBRA). From June 20-23. student teacher teams and their instructors traveled the length of the river from Canyon Dam to Matagorda Island to learn through observation and experience how the river is used by cities, industry, agriculture. and wildlife. * The tour began at the GBRA Nolte Island facility, where regional laboratory director Debbie Magin taught participants how to test water samples for •Texas Watch, a public water quality »Jnomtonng project of the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission. ^•Texas Watch volunteers sample water J-i&t a specific location on a regular basis. ♦?Their data, which is reported to TNR-♦jCC, provides vital information on the ♦'■health of overs and streams throughout J<the state. I* Other highlights included a tour of ♦She GBRA hydroelectric dam and powerhouse at Nolte Island to learn how ♦Awater from the river can generate elec-/Iricity; visiting a GBRA wastewater ♦•treatment plant to understand how current treatment methods deliver clean Awater back into rivers and streams; ♦ and a trip to the Structural Metals plant ’An Seguin to understand how SMI uses ♦ {water from the Guadalupe River while •♦^also practicing water conservation. V; On the following day, the Corps of a Engineers hosted a tour of the Canyon ♦ Dam and outtake structure to explain v how the reservoir provides flood control and water conservation benefits y*for the river basin. After a tour of the £GBRA Canyon Hydroelectric Plant, ♦♦students and teachers boarded rafts for v a trip down the Guadalupe River for a //first-hand look at its importance as a //habitat for aquatic plants and animals. /* The second half of the Great River + . J--'Run focused on the lower basin’s role |y'in providing water for agriculture, ‘♦♦ industry, and the rich variety of manne *• life that inhabits the estuaries and bay- J'.ous at the mouth of the Guadalupe C«_. ♦'.River. At Tivoli, GBRA representatives Kjtonducted a tour of the diversion system and v isited the Salt Water Bamer ♦♦♦That can be inflated to keep salt water /♦flows from contaminating river water ♦♦^during low flows or drought.To con Include their learning expenence, stu-/♦dents and teachers spent a day on ^ -{Matagorda Island under the guidanc scientists from the U.S. Fish and .♦♦♦Wildlife Service.
