LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock and the surrounding areas need to spend more than $1 billion in the next  50 years for water.  That's according to the rough draft of the Texas Water plan. 

Lubbock is within a 21-county region for the water plan.  It says the areas water needs will almost double in 60 years.  That same rough draft plan says water supply will go down 56%.

State officials are taking public comment until October 25th.  There will also be a public hearing Monday, October 3rd, at 6 PM at the  High Plains Underground Water Conservation District office, 2930 Avenue Q, Lubbock.
