WARD COUNTY - Ward County is still gearing up to form a groundwater conservation district and they're taking the next step in finding their leadership.

The lead attorney over forming the district told NewsWest 9 Thursday, that a meeting has been set up next Monday, with landowners in the county.

That meeting will decide who they will appoint to the leadership board over their district making the decisions about how it will run.

Once that board is in place the county can file a petition with the, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, to form the district.
