Don’t think the drought situation is real? Still think a green lawn is all the rage? Well, this is what it is coming down to because some people think they are well off enough to pay the WATER fines. Next they will turn ON the water for a few hours a day…get ready.
But until then:
Big Spring, Texas (CNN) Desperate times call for a tall, cool glass of creativity in this patch of West Texas where water is scarce and quickly disappearing.
But a plan to pump millions of new gallons of drinking water into the system has many people across West Texas holding their noses.
This week construction started on a $13 million water-reclamation facility. That’s a fancy way of describing a treatment plant that will turn sewage wastewater into drinking water.
“That’s not something I even want to think about,” said Eunice Thixton, a Big Spring resident. “It really doesn’t sound too good.”
There are three major reservoirs that provide drinking water for half a million people who live around Midland, Texas. But the drought is draining those lakes and threatens to create major water shortages in the months ahead.

Smart Meters will be coming soon to a water valve near you. What they are doing with electric meters will also happen to water meters. Your water will be turned on and off as needed. Gotta love technology!
Prevent this from happening…be responsible. Be Vocal.
