MIDLAND - We will have to wait until the next City Council meeting to see what decision Midland makes concerning water.

The Midland City Council tabled a discussion on negotiating an agreement with the Midland County Freshwater Supply District that would involve drilling a well into the Capitan Reef Aquifer near Fort Stockton.

City leaders hope the additional water will help ease the strain placed on residents by recent water restrictions.

The City of Odessa is already working with Fort Stockton officials on the possibility of bringing in more water from the same aquifer.
