Posted:

LAKE TEXOMA -- So far, 1,200 people have signed a petition that many say would help low water levels at Lake Texoma in the long run.

The Lake Texoma Association created the petition, seen here, on the website Change.org.

The petition is directed towards President Obama, and US and state representatives in Texas and Oklahoma.

It asks them to amend federal laws, or enact other legislation to protect and conserve water resources during the ongoing drought.

The petition says 248,000 more signatures are needed.
