NBl' s technical manager said the plant could supply the city with enough water for minimal uses “To me the over riding reason to get into this is for the safety of New Braunfels,’' he said Comal County's representatives to the edwards Cnderground Water District praised the move during the meeting, saying they hope San Antonio officials follow suit and reduce their reliance on the aquifer for water We're forever shaking our finger at San Antonio and saying. You need to get on surface water You're pum ping our aquifer dry.' ” said Craig Hollmig. a local representative to the Edwards board “I think you've made a great step in the right direction.’’ As the largest water user in the region, the City of San Antonio has no other source of water hut the aquifer Edwards representative Jack Ohlrich said the NHC hoard s decision is “vitally important " “Proving to San Antonio that we’re able to proceed with something like this. I think, will he a wedge we can use to encourage San Antonio to develop surface water." he told the board Sohn said earlier this week that the public may balk at the price of the treatment plant “We’ve got a double hickey there because of the previous attitude toward water It s cheap It comes out of the ground Now. when you build a $5 5 million treatment plant, you have to staff it." he said. adding the price of water probably will increase People have got to realize eventually just how impor taut water is." he said The utility manager said Thursday he plans to bring a bond proposal for the plant l>efore the board in the near future If the board supports the pro posal, the bond package will tx* reviewed by the New Braunfels City Council Currently, NBH owns water rights on the Comal River The board authorized legal counsel to transfer those rights to the Guadalupe River so the water can be used in the treat merit plant The board also authoriz ed Sohn to begin negotiations with the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority for the purchase of water in Canyon Lake Sohn pointed out that rights to water in the Guadalupe River will be useless if a drought causes the river to run dry But. because the lake was created to store water, buying water would ensure a supply, he said T he Retired Senior Volunteer Pro gram is growing in ('otnal County RSVP volunteers are actively volunteering their time and talents at the following non profit agencies and health care facilities Oak Crest Inn Colonial Manor Nursing Home.
