The Edwards Aquifer Research and Data Center (EARDC) was established in 1979 with special funding for Texas State University to provide a public service in the study, understanding and use of the very fragile natural resource, the Edwards Aquifer. The aquifer is a unique, world-renowned karst aquifer that is made up of porous, permeable limestone. It supplies water of exceptional quality to 1.5 million people in the San Antonio area and neighboring cities. Springs from the aquifer feed the Comal and San Marcos rivers which provide base flow in the Guadalupe River system. The aquifer and its associated spring support the habitat for nine species listed as endangered or threatened by the federal government. EARDC takes an active role in water education issues and works daily with public schools as well as institutions of higher education. Annually since 1989, our center has given some 40 tours to more than 1,000 elementary and secondary school students as part of their science field trips. Seminars and workshops are held frequently to promote water education and water conservation. The center also provides laboratory analysis of 4,000 water samples a year to more than 100 customers. EARDC operations are organized around four major areas:
