proposed in the TWC plan should be shortened to IO to 15 years for development of water sources to comply with Federal District Judge Lucius Bunion’s order, and to protect the region’s water users,” said Specht.
"We are pleased with other portions of the plan, however — particularly that the TWC has finally recognized the long-term yield of the Aquifer is actually
in the range of200,000 to 225,000 acre-feet per year,” said Pat Kelly, GBRA Board Chaimman. "This confirms that Edwards pumping must eventually be limited to this amount in order to provide continuous springflow at Comal Springs.
“We also agree with the Commission’s recommendations for an interim period during which pumping will be reduced,
and we support many of the methods suggested to accomplish this goal.”
But, according to Specht, GBRA disagrees with several key Commission recommendations.
“We need a regional committment to protect springflow,” said Specht. “The Commission recommendations fall short of advocating this critical step. This plan is too ‘conditional*”
-The proposed 30-year period recommended by the TWC to develop alternate water supplies is excessive,” according to Specht. "Substantial supplies can be made available within a ten-year time frame, or less.”
According to Kelly. “GBRA looks forward to reviewing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s recommendations for springflow which are due March 15th.
