A group of Texas counties, including 3 in Texoma, are banding together to start cloud seeding.

Knox, Haskell, Jones, Fisher and Stonewall counties are working on a 3 to 4 month contract with Seeding Operations and Atmospheric Research or SOAR. The 5 counties will split the cost of the project which is expected to be around 45 thousand dollars a month or about 8 thousand dollars per county. In Knox county, there are 7 entities that will split that 8 thousand dollar cost. The city of Munday will pay up to 15 hundred dollars a month.

The other entities are the Munday Economic Development Corporation, Knox City's Economic Development Corporation, Knox City and County, Rolling Plains water authority and North Central Texas municipal water authority.
