Record-breaking rainfall has an ancient spring near Incarnate Word University flowing again, according to its caretakers.
September 2018 is now the wettest September for San Antonio in recorded history, according to the National Weather Service.
16.82 inches has fallen up to and including Sept 22, breaking the previous record of 15.78 inches set in 1946.
On Sept 4 alone, 6.07 inches fell which smashed the day’s previous record of 1.79 inches set back in 1889.
After three weeks of deluges, the San Antonio River’s most prolific spring is flowing again.
‘The Blue Hole’ was the reason this area was first settled over 300 years ago. Back then the spring was a gusher — a natural fountain bursting with an abundance of life.
In recent years the flow of the water has been put in serious doubt.
But this year’s record rains have brought the spring back to life, and may be a sign of things to come — due to shifting global rainfall patterns linked to the GSM.
Pamela Ball, associate director of Headwaters at Incarnate Word, said she is thrilled to see the spring flowing again.
“The Edwards Aquifer [that feeds the spring] rose to the level of 672 … and as a result our Blue Hole, the source spring of the San Antonio River, is flowing again,” she said.
Native Americans believed the springs were spirit waters and gave birth to all creation.
Whenever the Blue Hole stopped flowing there was a mourning by the Native Peoples who saw this spot as an important location on Earth.
And they continued that mourning until the mineral-rich waters began flowing again.
