Update on town of Robert Lee

You may remember that the Coke County town of Robert Lee has been facing severe drought conditions and a critically low water supply. The town of Bronte, which is 12 miles away from Robert Lee and gets its water from Oak Creek Reservoir, has agreed to sell some of its extra water to Robert Lee, which will be able to pump it into town via a 10-inch pipe at a rate of 200,000 gallons of water a day.

This isn't really a story about a ghost town, but it does illustrate the latest chapter in Robert Lee's fight to avoid joining the roster of Texas ghost towns. Our best wishes go out to the townspeople of Bronte and Robert Lee in these trying times.
