Barnhart In West Texas Runs Out of Water
The one main well serving 112 customers in Barnhart, southwest of San Angelo, stopped pumping Tuesday night. The fire department says there's enough water for fighting fires but taps have run dry.
Barnhart, a small community in West Texas, has run out of water. John Nanny, an Irion County commissioner and an official with Barnhart's water supply corporation, said on Thursday that the situation was serious. When reached by telephone, he was working on pumping operations and hoped to have a backup well in service Friday morning.
