Just weeks after a recent report of Mansfield resident dissatisfaction with drilling near a residential neighborhood, yet another effort is being made to revamp public works methods.

According to a Nov. 19 article by Bill Hanna of the Star-Telegram, The Tarrant Regional Water District has identified a section of Mansfield resident Charles Crook’s property as a route for a pipeline that will connect to a $2.3 billion project to bring more water to Dallas-Fort Worth from East Texas.

"Under the plan, the pipeline would come within 100 feet of his house on Gibson Cemetery Road, about a mile outside Mansfield," the article says. "Crook doesn’t dispute that the water is needed — he said he supports the project — but he contends that the water district could have chosen a route with less impact on the semirural neighborhood."
