Midland and Odessa are in serious need of water.

Now oilman Clayton Williams is hoping the Middle Pecos Groundwater Conservation District will re-consider letting his company supply the cities with water.

You'll remember in June, the Middle Pecos Board denied Fort Stockton Holdings a permit to pump millions of gallons of water from his land in Pecos County over to the Midland and Odessa area.

Now William's wants a second hearing to get that permit for his company.

The issue is on the agenda for the board's August 16th meeting.
