With Lake Alan Henry water flowing into Lubbock the city is backing off on water restrictions, from stage 2 to stage 1. The change takes effect Monday.

·         Irrigation must be without significant runoff
·         City operations and wholesale customers must adhere to restrictions
·         Soaker hoses, drip irrigation, and hand watering is allowed at any time
·         The days that irrigation can occur will continue to be based on the last digit of the house or business address

Although Lake Alan Henry now provides the City with an additional source of water, it does not totally replace the Lake Meredith water supply.  In addition, the national weather forecasts predict that the drought will linger through the rest of this summer.
The City of Lubbock asks that all residents and businesses continue to be considerate and efficient with their water usage in an effort to conserve water and reduce overall demand.
