Those behind a water conservation initiative that carries a potential $20 million price tag say they hope to prolong the availability of the precious resource until the Ute pipeline project is complete. Clovis Mayor David Lansford, along with local agriculture consultant Blake Prather, have developed the Llano Estacado Water Conservation Initiative. The conservation initiative is meant to help the interim pipeline project — which would provide groundwater to the area until the Ute project is complete — actually have groundwater to provide.
