SHERMAN, Tex. -- A Sherman oil well will soon be dried up. City of Sherman officials say they are not affiliated with the project at Taylor and Crockett Streets, but say crews there are 'plugging the well,' which means they are using large pieces of equipment to stop its operations.
The Texas Railroad Commission handles the permitting, and apparently the well is not producing enough oil to keep it active.
Crews say upon completion they will clear the machinery from the scene.
