US Supreme Court Dismisses Texas Petition for Review in Pecos River Dispute

A Story by Dee Brabham | Updated 12/21/2020 12:00pm


I know years ago I would have never imagined that we would be purchasing water at a convenience store and now we pay more for it than we pay for gasoline!  And nothing is ever so precious as water and this case personifies exactly that.  This agreement, or better said “disagreement”, stems back in the 1940’s on the water rights of the Pecos river.

The Pecos river has so much history and character.  From being both in Mexico and the United States south on the Texas border, to stories of Judge Roy Bean.  The river being huge with tall canyon walls in Pecos to hardly a creek further upstream.

As most water rights cases, water when used more than its fair share tends to get the attention of someone.  Especially when the downstream is affected because the upstream user takes more than their “agreed” allotment.  There in lines the problem, ‘what is agreed?’

Like real estate, buying a car or anything, to have something enforceable, it has to be in writing.  Or that is until Supreme Court Justice’s, attorney’s and other’s have a difference of opinion on the ‘wording’ of how that agreement is interpreted.  This is really a great read!
