Public input sought on aquifer

Monday will be San Antonio's first chance to comment on possible changes to the management of the Edwards Aquifer that aim to balance the demand for water and the need to sustain endangered species.
For the past two decades, those who depend on the aquifer, including the San Antonio Water System and BexarMet, have operated under the fear that the federal government or state legislature could drastically limit pumping.

“We all have known we had to do something, but we never owned up to it,” said Weir Labatt, a member of the Texas Water Development Board who has been involved with water issues in San Antonio since his time on the City Council starting in 1986.
