Welcome to EAHCP
EAHCP Steward | Click the image above to access the latest edition of the EAHCP Steward. This bimonthly newsletter is intended to highlight efforts underway to protect our region's Comal and San Marcos Springs and ensure a healthy habitat for the threatened and endangered species.
The 2017 Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan Annual Report is now available to view. Click here to download the report. For report appendices, please contact EAHCP staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
San Marcos River | On August 27, 2018, the USGS Sewell Park flow gage (#08170500) recorded a discharge of less than 120 cfs in the San Marcos spring system. This discharge rate activates Condition M of the EAHCP’s Incidental Take Permit (ITP) #TE-63663A-1, effectively limiting riparian and habitat restoration activities in an effort to reduce the disturbance of the substrate, water quality, plants, animals and invertebrates. As low flow levels persist, the Permittees will continue to conduct biological and water quality monitoring activities. Restoration restrictions will continue until San Marcos spring flow increases and stabilizes above the 120 cfs low flow trigger.
National Academy of Sciences Third and Final Report | In early January, the National Academy of Sciences committee convened to conduct the third and final comprehensive review of the EAHCP. Report 3 will focus on the relationships among proposed conservation measures (including flow protection and habitat restoration), biological objectives (such as water quality criteria, habitat condition, and specified spring flow rates), and biological goals (such as maintaining populations of the Covered Species). EAHCP staff presented a summary of the HCP programs and how they relate to the biological objectives and goals to the Committee and provided members a tour of the San Marcos and Comal Spring Systems. Report 3 is expected in late 2018.
