A district judge has signed an order prohibiting a Midland-based energy company from pumping groundwater at Levelland Industrial Rail Park.
District Judge Pat Phelan signed the agreed order in lieu of a temporary restraining order.
It states that Chi Operating Inc., Chi Energy Inc. And Chi Partners Management LLC is restrained from ‘extracting, producing, transporting or making use of the water’ from the Rail Park.
Levelland Economic Development Corporation filed a lawsuit against Chi last month, asking that it no longer pump water at the park.
The suit seeks temporary and permanent injunctions against Chi.
It also seeks compensation for ‘all damages.’
