ABSTRACT

The Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan (EAHCP) protects the federally listed species in the Comal and San Marcos Springs. The plan was developed through the Edwards Aquifer Recovery Implementation Program, a consensus-based process involving a diverse body of stakeholders including industries, agricultural users, municipalities, water purveyors, river authorities, environmental organizations, four state agencies, and downstream interests. Since 2013, the partners of the EAHCP have implemented a multifaceted program mainly focused on spring-flow protection and habitat improvements to ensure the persistence of the covered species and to create more certainty in the region’s water supplies.
