English term or phrase: draws
Mayor Nikolauk, a retired Air Force colonel and a member of the Upper Colorado River Authority, also had some contact with the FLDS leadership, especially when they ran afoul of Texas environmental rules. They were dumping raw sewage into one of the wide "draws" — the dry stream beds that can suddenly fill in heavy rains, sending water downstream to the Colorado River, a vital source for agriculture and recreation. The FLDS hired a Dallas engineer to design a sewage plant for them, but they wouldn't allow him on the land, Nikolauk said, so an arrangement was made to haul sewage to the city plant. They always paid their bills — in cash. "I established rapport with two or three of them," Nikolauk says, but few members of the community were ever seen in town at the feed store or coffee shop.
