I watched on the news as the residents of Lake Granbury bemoaned that their lake is almost six feet low and tried to tie the low water to the nuclear plant at Glen Rose. Residents and their spokesmen insisted that the low water at Granbury endangered the power plant's operation, in spite of the insistence of power plant management that it was not the case.

I believe that the reason is much more personal, namely the use of their docks. What they want is for the dam at Possum Kingdom Lake to be opened to fill their lake, even though PK Lake is more than 10 feet low and water is still being released.

As a resident of PK, whose dock has been on the ground for more than two years, I feel their pain. However, the drought affects us all, and it is the Brazos River Authority (unaccountable to anyone) that is continuing to sell our precious groundwater to businesses downstream. If the folks at Granbury can stop that, more power to them, but stop petitioning to drain PK Lake to fill Granbury.
