WHAT FLOATS NEATH By Greg Bowen I he Heialcl-Zeituiig Picture in your mind New Braunfels' downtown Plaza coverc'd with beer cans and other litter |)iled thrc'c' and oire-half tc’et dee[i. ()i you could imagine a toolball field covered with trash to a dc'i)th ol two feet. Both scenarios amount to approxi-matelv 750,(HK) gallons of debris. That's thc> c'stimat-ed load of litter city offic iais are forcH,ast-ing they'll collect this tourist season from the city's (;omal    and Guadalupe rivers, according to city Watershed Program Manager Nathan Pence. The forec ast is based on the 4'i2,995 gallons collc'cted from the* rivers through |uly 14. Pc'iice said 2011 year-to-date litter colk*cti()ns have already sur-passcxl season-lcing totals for 2009 (J90,28T gallons), 2008 (20.i,700 gallons) and 2007 (199,1 i8 gallons) and are nearing the 518,987 gallons collec ted during the entire sc'ason in 2010.

More tubers, better litter collection Pence attributCH:! the rising amount of litter to the increasing number of tubers visiting New Braunfels and to improvcMTients in litter-col Ic'ction efforts. "The more people you have on the rivc^rs, the more trash they are going to leave behind," he said. But Iitter-cc)llection has been much improved, too, he said.
