A local couple has asked the state for help with the problem of falling well levels southwest of Las Vegas — a problem residents there blame on city water pumping.
But the state engineer’s office, which handles water issues, told the couple that the state can do little about the problem.
Jack and Betty Thompson, who have lived in Ojitos Frios since 1992, told the state in an e-mail that they have seen their well level drop by one foot a week since the city resumed pumping at Taylor Wells in April.
