June 24, 2016 – An oil and gas company and the State Land Commissioner are locked in a heated battle after the state revoked the company’s water and land rights permits.

According to a press release from the state, the rights were revoked after applications showed that GUS H20 wanted an additional 130 million gallons of water from the Ogallala aquifer that.
