Tuesday, September 10, 1985TThe Battalion/Page 7 Waldo by Kevin Thomas Sierra Club refuses to take sides in proposed statewide water plan Associated Press AUSTIN — The Sierra Club’s Texas chapter refused to take sides Monday on the proposed $1.4 bil lion statewide water plan, its leaders saying they will make no recommen dation to voters who will decide the plan’s fate Nov. 5. Comparing the plan to hall a glass of water, chairman Howard Saxion said the club couldn’t decide whether to consider the glass half full or half empty. “There’s some good things in it and some bad things in it,” Saxion said. “We leave it to the voters to de cide whether the water in the glass should be accepted, added to or poured out.” The Sierra Club, Texas’ largest environmental group, also ham mered Gov. Mark White over what it said was his failure to provide lead ership on water problems. "What appalled us somewhat was that at the outset of the legislative session, the governor said, ‘A water package is my No. 1 priority,’ and left it at that,” said Ken Kramer, Sierra Club lobbyist. White, who was attending a Southern Governors Association meeting in Miami, didn’t respond di rectly to the criticism. In a statement issued by aides, White said, “I am pleased the Sierra Club has identified elements of the proposed Texas water plan that it can support.” The water plan is made up of two proposed constitutional amend ments. One would authorize $980 million in bonds for water devel opment projects and extend $250 million in state credit to guarantee local government projects. The sec ond would authorize $200 million in bonds for loans to farmers buying water-saving irrigation equipment. Some of the plan's backers have feared strong environmentalist op position to the long-negotiated pro posal. Three earlier plans failed when put to voters. But the Sierra Club’s neutrality left only the Aubu- don Society and the Texas Commit tee on Natural Resources opposing the plan. Saxion said the Sierra Club found positive and negative aspects of the proposal and distributea a listing of 11 “good” points and 12 “bad” points. Among the positives, he said, are extra financial aid for building wast ewater treatment facilities and offi cial encouragement of conservation practices. Among the negatives, Saxion said, are provisions allowing lawmakers to OK water projects without voter ap proval and lack-of enforcement for groundwater management.
