MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — Some lucky ducks in West Texas will get a chance to splash using recycled water.
Officials in Midland have decided to transfer water from the 500,000-gallon Doug Russell Pool to Wadley Barron Park’s duck pond to help relieve a dry spell. Wells that were drilled to supply the pond haven’t yielded as much water as hoped.
The Midland Reporter-Telegram (http://bit.ly/13U8MPS ) reported Wednesday that the water from the municipal pool, which has now closed for the season, will be trucked when chlorine levels fade.
Tina Jauz with Midland community services says the water transfer is not likely to offset the pond’s evaporation amid lingering hot, dry conditions. She says refilling it with water from Doug Russell Pool, which is normally drained, is one way to help combat the drought.
