Nichols preliminary approval puts Parkhouse in background

On March 4, the State of Texas gave preliminary approval to the Marvin Nichols Reservoir proposal. The public commentary period on this issue will continue through April 15, with the final decision due May 15. The destiny of the other proposed project in the Sulphur River Basin - the George Parkhouse Reservoirs - will be determined after the Marvin Nichols proposal gets its final thumbs-up or thumbs-down.
