At this time F'ey said, she does not know how a water system will affect taxes in Selma She said she also believes her appointment on the council to serve with her brother “will not have a major effect on mak ing crucial decisions, in fact my brother didn t even vote for me," she said “However, .serving with my brother on the same council is a real honor This doesn t mean he doesn't have his own opinion-and I don t have mine."
F'ey supports installment of a proposed w ater system a plan she has been pushing for more than two years The system was a heated issue last April when .lobe and F'ey locked horns Jobe wants the current w-ater system to undergo a major overhauling, which in turn would save both money and taxes, the of ficial says Fey wants a new water system to be installed which Johe says will cost an “arm and a leg ’ Many residents say they now believe that because F'ey is again on council, .lobe will back off her cam paign to overhaul the water sytem, but -lobe disagrees “Residents must he made aware of the consequences involved," she said
“The residents against it are from Olympia Subdivision and they get their water from I niversal City,” F'ey said “The people in Selma Park P'states have a well hut it doesn t accommodate the houses there and there are more going up "
“People in town get their water out of my brother’s well He’s just being good hearted and letting people use it for a very small charge, ” F ey said Olympia resident Cal ('rochet has also voiced concern about the propos ed water system ‘ I think we should study this in detail, especially if there is federal money available to help fund this svstem." he said Crochet has questioned council members about water purchases from nearby Schertz or from another system Crochet might be getting
some results if the council can put together a package to purchase a $125,000 water system from I^if /ars, owner of the Selma Park F'states Water Svstem

crossings around town Park Ranger Lee Hart said today the Corps of F'ngineer officials in F't Worth were planning to open releases from the lake to 2,500 cubic feet per second tomorrow’ and then up to 5,200 cfs by June 15 to relieve the lake of high waters w’hich have forced the closings of nearly all parks there since June 3 Hart said. though. because of con tinued rains, the option to release more than UM) or so cubic feet per se cond could change at any time. Corps officials, who control outflow rates after the lake level rises above 909 feet msl. have kept release rate*; around IOO cfs to mitigate downstream flooding “Outflow rates are subject to change with the weather conditions. Hart said Recreational activity in the Guadalupe River below the dam become dangerous when outflow rates exceed ‘2.i*oo cfs Flood waters in the Guadalupe River have had to he controlled due to flooding in Victoria and Cuero where rivers and creeks have swell ed weel above flood stage, leaving hundreds of people homeless and resulting in millions of dollars in pro perty damage over the past two weeks
A dispatcher with the Victoria County Sheriff s office today said the rivers had begun weeding earlier in the week hut with new rains, pro blems are expected to worsen "It has been horrible here.” said Randy Albert of the Victoria sheriff s office “We have had four inches of rain in the past couple of days and we are continuing to get rain Manx areas are still flooded “
Hart said it takes nearly four days for water at Canyon Lake dam to reach Victoria and said lake officials will monitor downstream river levels before procedtng with any increased lake releases David Welseh. planning director
for the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority, said that with continued strong rain in the Kerrville area, strong inflows into the lake are ex peeled
If inflows cause the lake level to reach the spillway, river flow’s wall be increased hut the dam will not be threatened The dam is literally a high earthen wall barrier with a notch in it" he said, adding that extremely high water can flow through that notch
“The dam is built even higher than that and that way you assure the in tegritv of the structure The water never gets higher than the spillway he said
The reason for the heavy inflow in to the lake is the enormous amount of runoff from up stream. Welseh said As rains have continued in the Central Texas region for more than three weeks, the ground is saturated, he said “You have a strong flow it all runs off and then subsides," he ad ded
Howard Spandau. owner of the Guadalupe Outpost, said the river is running at about 806 cubic feet per se cond near his business That is about the same he has soon for several w’eeks. he said
“We haven t had any problems w’lth high water over here We’re in good shape here That’s just close to a normal flow." he said Once the I S. Army Corps of Engineers iii creases outflows at Canyon Lake Spandau said the flow near his business will increase to about 5,000 cfs “That doesn t even take it out of the banks.’’ Spandau added
The Comal River this morning was flow ing at 910 cubic feet per second The record for outflow from the Lur da Hark springs is 550 cfs
Bill Pep** who takes doth readings of the river flow and the Edwards I nderg roil od Aquifer, said the Com al River reading includes the flow from the Dry (Amal and from Blieders ('reek
