In a recent survey conducted at Abilene Christian University, students found that nearly 50% of Abilene’s citizens are against selling water to the proposed coal-fired plant with only 28% supporting the water sales. The data also shows a minority majority of citizens who support the construction of the plant and many are still unsure. Despite the fact that an estimated 100 permanent jobs may result from Tenaska’s presence, the issue of water still remains at the focal point of the discussion. While the economic incentives are strong, it seems that the citizens of Abilene aren’t willing to give their water up.
