Texas drought hinders water
distribution to various cities

Customers to
experience limited
water supplies
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP)
- The devastating drought has
taken its toll on a Texas Panhandle
lake, now too low to keep supply-
ing water to nearly adozen cities.
The Canadian River Municipal
Water Authority near Amarillo
voted to stop usingLake Meredith,
which had been a water source
since the 1960s.
The water authority's half-
million customers are not likely to
notice the effects of Wednesday's
vote until next summer, said Kent
Satterwhite, the authority's gen-
eral manager. Although the lone
remaining water supply is plen-
.tiful, the peak demand may put
stress on its delivery, he said.
This year the lake's water, for
the first time, was pumped for cit-
ies' use only from June through
August instead of year-round
because water levels dropped to
a record low - just under 31 feet,

Satterwhite said. The record high
level was nearly 102 feet in 1973.
"Thesurface areaisonlyasmall
fraction of what it used to be," Sat-
terwhite said Thursday, adding
that only one boat ramp remains
open. "From my house, I can't see
the water anymore."
The U.S. Drought Monitor map
released Thursday shows 73.1 per-
cent of the state in the exceptional
range, down from 87.9 percent
last week. But much of the Pan-
handle remains in the most severe
drought stage because it did not
get as much rainfall thatfell across
other parts of Texas the past week.
The state is in its worst single-
year drought. And the rainfall
probability is below normal for the
state, including the Panhandle, for
the next three months, said Victor
Murphy, a meteorologist with the
National Weather Service in Fort
Worth.
The Canadian River Munici-
pal Water Authority's remaining
water source is the Ogallala Aqui-
fer, one of the world's largest.
The authority had already been
pumping water into wells from

that Roberts County aquifer for
its customers. Then in June, the
authority bought water rights
beneath 211,000 acres for $103
million from billionaire oilman
T. Boone Pickens and his Mesa
Water Inc.
The purchase involved about 4
trillion gallons of water, "enough
to last us 130 years," Satterwhite
said. But the 48-mile pipeline
from wells in Roberts County to
Amarillo and Lubbock and Lame-
sa - and several cities in between
- is not large enough to meet
increased summer demands, he
said.
Buildinga bigger pipeline is too
costly to be an option right now,
he said. Some cities might impose
water restrictions next summer to
help conserve.
Although Lake - Meredith is
expected to continue drying up,
Satterwhite said it could be used
as a water source in the future.
"There are so many variables,
but one good storm could just
change everything for us," he said.
"We're hopeful, but I wouldn't say
optimistic."

Grounded ship poses oil spill threat

New Zealand boat
dumps hundreds of
tons of oil into ocean
TAURANGA, New Zealand
(AP) - The calmest weather in
days has given salvage crews
hope they will be able today to
resume pumping the remaining
fuel from a cargo ship stuck on a
New Zealand reef.
The ship Rena has already
spilled hundreds of tons of oil
and crews are in a race against
nature to try and remove the
remaining fuel before waves

break up the vessel, which has
begun to crack apart and is
leaning on a 22-degree tilt.
Last week crews removed
about 10 tons of oil before the
weather forced them to post-
pone salvage attempts.
Environmentalists have
warned of a disaster for wildlife
if all the ship's 1,870 tons (1,700
metric tons) of oil and 220 tons
(200 metric tons) of diesel is
allowed to spill into the ocean.
Nick Bohm, a spokesman for
Maritime New Zealand which
is managing the emergency
response, told The Associated
Press Friday that crews are

"relatively positive" they can
proceed with plans to board the
vessel and begin pumping oil to
a nearby barge. He said pump-
ing should begin Friday after-
noon in an operation that could
last several days.
Bohm said there are stronger
winds forecast for the weekend
which may hamper the operation.
Meanwhile, several of the 88
containers that have fallen off its
deck had washed ashore by Fri-
day, and authorities confirmed
one container that toppled over-
board contained a hazardous sub-
stance. However, an official said it
should not pose a major threat.
