Local business helping with Lake Alan Henry pipeline

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Once complete, the pipeline from Lake Alan Henry will bring an estimated 50 million gallons of drinking water a day to Lubbock. Before that happens, it must be built.

It might surprise many to know that local business Hanson Pressure Pipe is providing the concrete pressure pipe for the project.

"The piping that's going to be brought in for this project to bring water to Lubbock is actually being built in Lubbock, so we're kinda proud of that fact too," says Mike Leathers with Hansen Pressure Pipe.

City Councilman Floyd Price says, "I'm just waiting for the day to taste some of that good Lake Alan Henry water pumped through some of this pipe that are manufactured here in Lubbock."

Phase one of the project will create around 40 new jobs in Lubbock. The multi-million dollar project is expected to be complete in 2010.
