The battle is joined over the potential development of Lake Fastrill, a reservoir site eyed by Dallas as a future source of water. Now the city and the state are suing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over the latter’s designation of the area as a protected natural refuge, a move many saw as transparent effort to take the Fastrill project off the water schedule. This will be but one of many lawsuits over North Texas water in the coming years, although this one is unusual in that most of the suits will probably come from environmental or business interests, seeking to block state or municipal action.
