MIDLAND COUNTY - The Permian Basin is one step closer to the construction of the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.
On Tuesday, the Midland City Council approved almost 2.5 million dollars for a pump station and water lines.
The plan is to pump water from the Midland International Airport to the center, which will be built at Highway 191 and 1788, near the C.E.E.D. Building.
The 2,000 seat facility is scheduled to open in 2012.
