LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lake Meredith, which serves as a water supply for 11 West Texas cities including Lubbock, is once again near record-low levels.  

Right now the lake is sitting at 46.35 feet.  The record low was set in July of 2008, when it got down to 45.25 feet.  Shortly after, it rebounded roughly10-feet from torrential rains, only to fall again in the last 12-months. 

The City of Lubbock along with other West Texas communities are not waiting for the lake to go dry.  Collectively they're spending $26-million on expanded ground water projects.
