Under .he Aquifer suit filed in Midland MIDLAND,Texas (AP) — A Sierra Club lawsuit to restrict withdrawal from the Edwards Aquifer could limn water use by Central Texas residents in order to save endangered species in the state’s largest springs. The lawsuit, filed in Midland federal court Friday, alleges that the U S. Interior Department under Secretary Manuel Lujan Jr. failed to regulate use of the aquifer, which provides drinking and irrigation water to the San Antonio and Austin areas Residents of San Antonio, the largest city in the nation to get its entire water supply from an aquifer, had been asked to limit usage last year when Comal Springs, the slate’s largest, almost went dry. officials said. The lawsuit follows San Antonio voters’ rejection of an alternative sur face reservoir and state and local officials’ failure to negotiate a water use plan with the federal government. Papers filed in the lawsuit ask the court to order the Intenor Department to enforce the Fmdangercd Species Act with regard to the aquifer to preserve almost a haif-do/en endangered species and implement recovery plans to ensure the flow of water to San Marcos Springs. Texas’ second largest. “I very much support the idea of filing the suit,” said Dr. Glenn Langley. director of the Edwards Aquifer Research Center in San Marcos “After San Antonio bad umed down and stopped construction on its first attempt at an alternative water supply, it was a good indication they were not concerned about the springs.” he said.
