Rainwater harvesting bill turns into study committee

The House Agriculture and Water Committee voted Wednesday to create a committee to study the feasibility of large-scale water harvesting in Arizona.

The committee injected a strike-everything amendment on Senate Bill 1522 to create the committee.

The bill originally would have created a new fourth type of water right called harvested rainwater so large-scale rainwater harvesting projects could receive groundwater use credits.

Water elevation of Lake O’ the Pines under study

DAINGERFIELD — The Northeast Texas Municipal Water District approved an agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for planning assistance for Cypress Bayou.

The study, which will cost $80,000, will evaluate whether there is an environmental benefit from keeping the elevation at the Lake O’ the Pines slightly higher during the winter.

“Right now we have a recreation pool that will start in the summer with an elevation of 230 feet,” General Manager Walt Sears said.

“We would like for the Corps to consider that elevation year round and are evaluating whether storing slightly more water in the Lake O’ the Pines as a result of that elevation would allow for an environmental benefit.”

Japan earthquake displaced water in Edwards Aquifer

Energy released from last week's massive earthquake caused the walls of the sprawling aquifer to contract and expand, official says

The water level of Texas' Edwards Aquifer was displaced about a foot Friday after energy released from a massive earthquake near Japan put the squeeze on the underground rock formation that supplies drinking water for much of Central Texas.

The 9.0-magnitude quake caused its walls to contract and expand, officials with the Edwards Aquifer Authority said Wednesday. A monitor in a Bexar County well that continuously records the aquifer's water level noted the oscillations, which lasted about two hours from late Thursday to early Friday morning, said Geary Schindel , the authority's chief technical officer. The force from the quake took about 15 minutes to reach the aquifer, he said.
