Appeal is planned concerning the sale of water in southern Oklahoma

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Plaintiffs who wanted a law that requires in-depth studies before water can be sold from an aquifer plan to appeal a ruling finding the law constitutional.

An attorney for Jacobs Ranch, Roos Ranch and Roos Resources Incorporated says the Oklahoma Supreme Court should take up the case.

At issue is Senate Bill 288, which enacted a moratorium on moving large quantities of water out of the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer without the studies.

Attorney Clyde Muchmore says the plaintiffs are being denied the rights other Oklahomans have to use water under their land.

Gary Green of Citizens for the Protection of the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer says the group is elated with the Oklahoma County judge's ruling.
