The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment
As the steward of Spring Lake, The Meadows Center is responsible for the management of this unique body of water and its natural and cultural resources. Given that this effort is crucial, our Diving Program depends on the help of its AquaCorps, a team of trained volunteer divers that realize the goals of conserving the springs for future generations. By successfully completing the Spring Lake Dive Authorization course (DAC), qualified Open Water SCUBA divers can become members of our AquaCorps and assist us in managing and monitoring the lake, while at the same time enjoying dives in crystal clear water with constant temperature in one of the best freshwater dive sites in the state.

More and more divers are recognizing a desire to give back to the underwater world that has given them so much. Join us by using your skills as a SCUBA diver to help protect and preserve one of the true treasures of Texas: Spring Lake.

Requirements:
Show proof of a Full Open Water SCUBA Certification through a major Dive Training Agency (at this time Junior Open Water/Advanced Certifications are not being accepted);
Show proof of a minimum of 20 logged dives beyond their training dives;
Students must provide all of their own equipment, including tanks and weights.
Pay the Course fee of $230 per student*,**
Students must complete and turn in all required paperwork.
Course Description:
Course Duration: One day beginning at 9 a.m., plus the time necessary to complete take home modules and assessments (approx. four hours).

The Spring Lake Dive Authorization Course is divided into four take-home academic modules and assessment quizzes that are to be completed by each student prior to the beginning of the class.

Students will meet for one full day at Spring Lake where the assessment quizzes will be reviewed, diving skills will be assessed, a tour of the springs will be given and common volunteer tasks will be demonstrated.

This course is PASS/FAIL. Students must score at least 70% on each of the assessment quizzes and demonstrate that they are competent divers (good buoyancy control and situational awareness) in order to pass.

*If fees for the course are to be paid through an organization, the Department, the Lead Supervisor, or the Responsible Organization should make Requests.

**Current Texas State students, faculty and staff receive a 50% discount on the course fee
