Small Texas Town Running Out of Water Makes National News

The town of Groesbeck’s water issues have been making news for over a week now. The town is running out of water, and while estimates vary as to exactly when that will happen, everyone seems to agree it’s a real enough possibility in the near future to be worried.

The town approved a stopgap measure last week to pipe in water from a quarry a few miles away, which should hold them over until March. And on Monday evening, the town got about two inches of much-needed rain.

Now the story is making national news, bringing more attention to the drought in Texas. CBS News aired the report above Tuesday evening.
