LUBBOCK, TX (PRESS RELEASE) - The City of Lubbock will receive a $660,600 grant and a $1,981,000 loan to assist with upgrades to the water treatment plant in Lubbock that serves the rural communities of Brownfield, Lamesa, Slaton, Tahoka, and O'Donnell, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced Friday.

The funding comes from a Rural Development grant and loan through the United States Department of Agriculture.
