Pecos County Gets Grant For New Water Well

Pecos County residents could be getting a new water source soon.
FORT STOCKTON -- Pecos County residents could be getting a new water source soon.

    Pecos County Judge Joe Shuster tells Big 2 that county commissioners recently got a grant to help build a new water well.

    The new well project has been two years in the making, but it took on new urgency recently -- after the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality found increased levels of radon and uranium in a local well.

    Shuster stresses that the well water in Pecos County is still drinkable, but the current well has been red-flagged by the T.C.E.Q.

    By red-flagging the well, the T.C.E.Q. is asking the county to find a solution for the well issues.

    Construction on the new well could start in the spring.
