Just how precious is water in West Texas? Evidently, it is so precious some are ready to petition that what is here should stay here.
An online petition has been circulating the Internet since yesterday in an effort to convince the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority to halt pumping water from Lake Meredith. As of Wednesday evening, the petition had gained 412 e-signatures in a 24-hour time span.
According to the petition, local residents want CRMWA to cease pumping water from the lake in order to preserve the lake’s recent gains.
