GEAA publishes Manual for Edwards Aquifer region

Dear GEAA members and friends,

I am delighted to announce the completion of GEAA’s latest publication, Watershed Stewardship for the Edwards Aquifer Region, a Low Impact Development Manual.  This project has been in the works for years, and we are so happy to have finally sent it off to the printers!  You can access the full publication on-line here.

This manual was designed for developers, landscape architects, and all of those who live on, or are planning to build over our fragile aquifer recharge areas.  Information about techniques that encourage infiltration of clean stormwater on site, and how plantings and landscaping can be used to mitigate stormwater pollution are outlined in the Manual, which also includes a beautifully illustrated compendium of native and drought tolerant plants appropriate for use in our area.  Please take a look and tell us what you think.
We are extremely grateful to all who contributed to the creation of this publication – especially to karst expert, George Veni, and graphic artist, Janet Thome for their considerable expertise and artistry.

Full color print copies will be available for sale in mid-September through the GEAA store on our web site, and in our office at 1809 Blanco Road in San Antonio.  On line access is available from the "Publications" section on our web site.

Again, thank you to everyone who made this possible! 
Annalisa Peace, Exective Director,
Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance
