Wichita County Will Help Fund Cloud Seeding Project

Posted: Updated:
Wichita County will help fund a cloud seeding project in Wichita Falls.

Wichita Falls City Councilors approved the project last week. It is expected to cost up to $300,000 dollars. 

County Commissioners met Monday morning. They agreed to pay $5,000 dollars a month over the next six months for the project. 
     
Cloud seeding is done by sending a plane into the sky and dropping flares filled with Silver Iodide into the clouds to increase rain chances. 
     
The city is hoping to get ten total participants to contribute to the funding, including Wichita County.
