Erosion Concerns at Lubbock Playa Lake

South Lubbock residents are concerned their homes might be in jeopardy if the city doesn't fix the erosion problem at Remington Park. Now those residents may get their wish.

On Thursday, the city has decided to look for city money to help fix the erosion and put an irrigation system in place. "The neighborhood association has been working four years to improve the area around the playa lake at Remington Park. Our number one issue is safety," said Lisa Stane, an area resident. "We want to see the erosion fixed, there's been suggestions by fish and wildlife and Texas Tech a way to do that a natural way."

City officials estimate it could cost around $140,000 to fix the erosion problem.
