Lubbock water usage down 20% since 2011

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

KCBD NewsChannel 11 has tracked water usage as a whole from the very start, since Stage 2 water restrictions went into effect on April 1, 2012.     

City of Lubbock Director of Water Resources, Aubrey Spear says, water levels are right on track.

City records reveal that usage has decreased 20% for the month of April.  Aubrey said, "It's a good sign and a good trend."

On average, usage for April 2011 measured 41 million gallons per day.  As of April 18, 2012, daily water usage average 32 million gallons per day.

"We can now see what kind of impact we may be having by having those restrictions in place," said Spear. 

Spear says the main goal is to make up the 9 to 10 million gallons of water lost from what we normally would have received from Lake Meredith.

The temporary Stage 2 water restrictions are expected to be lifted by September 2012.
