It could be January before Oilman Clayton Williams will have a hearing on his plan to pump water out of Pecos County.

The City of Fort Stockton filed a motion requesting that the Middle Pecos Groundwater Conservation District postpone the dates.

That's because a hydrology study won't be complete in time.

Fort Stockton Holdings' and Williams agreed with the request to put off the hearing until January.

A company executive says he respects that the city wants to completely analyze the study.
