The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District today approved a short-term water sale from Clendening Reservoir in Harrison County.
Oklahoma-based American Energy-Utica LLC will pay the district $6 per 1,000 gallons of water, said district spokeswoman Barbara H. Bennett.
The contract covers May 1 through July 31.

A 6-million-gallon withdrawl would lower Clendening about a quarter inch, she said.Read more by clicking here.
