Trustees of the San Antonio Water System on Tuesday approved a measure asking the City Council to toughen the city’s drought rules, making restrictions on lawn watering kick in earlier.
The proposed rules would mean once-a-week lawn watering would start when the Edwards Aquifer level falls to 660 feet above sea level in San Antonio instead of the 650 feet level now in city ordinance.
This is an excerpt from a recent San Antonio Express-News article.
Dear GEAA Members and Friends,
The holiday season is coming upon us fast! Once Thanksgiving passes, we will be bombarded with holiday paraphernalia, Christmas lights and snowmen (though probably no real snow…). Come December, we will be bombarded with new STUFF. The amount of clutter in our lives can become overwhelming. GEAA wants to help you clean out your closet! We are hosting our second annual ONLINE auction for the first two weeks in December. Donate items to GEAA and we’ll sell them online. Thanks to programs like MissionFish (Ebay’s charitable auction service), Ebay grants nonprofit organizations 100% of their proceeds. That means none of the donations get lost in processing fees.
If you own a bed and breakfast or are in the service industry, you can donate a weekend stay or gift certificates. Items that we can sell: gift certificates, coffee, electronics, tickets, sporting goods, books, video games and more!
Please email me at email@example.com or call at 210 320 1457 with a description and estimated value of your donation.
Look for our announcement and visit the GEAA E-Bay Auction later this month. Your holiday giving will be twice as generous when you purchase presents from among the fabulous offerings we are sure to have.

We are pleased to announce that H-E-B has selected EarthShare of Texas to be the beneficiary of its in-store coupon promotion for November, in recognition of Texas Recycles Day. This means that customers can tear off and add check-out coupons worth $1, $3, or $5 to their total bill to support environmental work in the San Antonio area.
H-E-B has supported many EarthShare of Texas organizations with corporate grants or in-kind contributions. The November tear-pad promotion enables H-E-B customers to support the environmental program work of more than two dozen Earth Share of Texas organizations, including GEAA. Look for the EarthShare of Texas display and tear-off coupons at the check-out stands in more than 50 H-E-B and Central Market stores in the San Antonio and Hill Country area from late October through early December. And help support Earth Share of Texas and the Texas environment!
