FORT STOCKTON - It looks like the battle over water in Fort Stockton could be gaining some steam again.

You'll remember oilman Clayton Williams Company wanted a permit to pump water from his land in Pecos County to the Midland/Odessa area.

The Middle Pecos Groundwater Board denied the permit last month.

A special meeting was held on Friday where they confirmed all facts and conclusions found.

Now Fort Stockton Holdings has 20 days to request an appeals hearing and state why they want it.

The Board will have 90 days to then consider it.
