Members of Lubbock's Water Advisory Board are considering whether to provide water to the Post community.
Post was put on notice more than a month ago that it would run out of water in 90 days. It is enforcing stage three water restrictions.
The board is determining if emergency water less than 35 million gallons can be diverted to post through existing pipelines.
"They're developing a new well field, and they've got to get that well field online," Water Advisory Chairman James Collins said. "The problem stems from the drying up, of course, of their reservoir. so we're looking at a very short term obligation to provide them with a very small amount of water."
The 11 communities that are members of the Canadian river water agreement would have to approve this allocation and Lubbock's city council would have final approval.
