When buying land
out here, be
sure you have access to a water supply. For
example, in April 2011, Leakey's town council
(Mayor Jesse Pendley, Ken Auld, Hugh
Buchanan, Carl Jensen, Scott Chisum, Duane Wilson Jr.) voted to
stop selling water from the Leakey City Standpipe to
those who hauled it, however they allowed three
customers to be grandfathered. If you are lucky enough to
drill and find water, will it be potable? Check
out water planning and issues for Region J at the
Texas Water Development Board.

Water rights are
very desirable. Desirable enough for mineral
rights fraud? How about for identity theft? Enough motive for murder?
