Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District Agrees to Sell Water to American Energy Utica

From the Akron Beacon Journal:
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. 
The maximum volume of water that can be withdrawn is 2.5 million gallons per day or 6 million gallons over three days, she said. 
A 6-million-gallon withdrawl would lower Clendening about a quarter inch, she said.

This is another move by the MWCD that will no doubt anger anti-drillers.
