Officials Not Concerned about Mercury Levels in LAH Water

LUBBOCK, TX (Press Release) -

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 3, 2010
FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: 

In response to a press release by the Texas Department of State Health Services regarding Lake Alan Henry, the City of Lubbock reassures the public that Lake Alan Henry water is safe.

The fish that were tested by the Texas Department of State Health Services for their study were tested in 2008.

Mercury levels in fish do not directly correlate to mercury levels in the water.  The City wants to reiterate that elevated levels of mercury in fish do not pose a health risk for people swimming, fishing or participating in other water recreation activities in the Alan Henry Reservoir.

Also, the City wants the citizens of Lubbock to know that their water supply will be safe for consumption when the Lake Alan Henry pipeline comes online in 2012. ###
