Nueces turned green for science, not St. Paddy’s

The following appeared in the Sunday, March 19, 2017, edition of the Uvalde Leader-News.

 

If you crossed the Nueces River in a certain location over the last few days, you might have guessed it was St. Patrick’s Day.

A geology class from the University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with the Edwards Aquifer Authority, spent their spring break conducting a study to determine the origin of one of the most important springs that feeds the Nueces River.

Candelaria Creek is a spring-fed tributary to the river in the Montell area, and at times may supply as much as 50 percent of the river flow as the Nueces recharges the Edwards Aquifer.

“There is some question if this spring is just river water, temporarily passing through the extensive gravel deposits in the river canyon, or if it is a unique source of water to the Nueces from the Trinity Aquifer,” said Marcus Gary, University of Texas professor and hydrogeology supervisor for the EAA.

By KIMBERLY RUBIO

When four members of American Legion Post 479 met with U.S. Congressmen Will Hurd and Beto O’Rourke on Monday, they took the opportunity to discuss issues rural veterans face – which they say differ from veterans who reside in larger cities where VA facilities are readily available.

O’Rourke, who is a member of the U.S. House of RepresentativesVA committee, and Hurd held a bipartisan gathering at VFW Post 76 in San Antonio to listen to concerns of area veterans.
