From the Update:
Am I missing something here? Water is going from Lake Bridgeport to Lake Texhoma [sic]? Isn't that what they call "uphill".
Edit: That "before" word is a bit tricky, but I guess that makes sense. Perhaps better: "Star-Telegram reports today that the 60-mile pipeline would pick up water from the Beaver Creek drainage basin and transport it to Lake Bridgeport thereby diverting the water from Lake Texoma."
