LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

With the Lake Alan Henry Pipeline now officially online, Lubbock officials announced Wednesday that Stage 2 water restrictions will be lifted August 20th.

City officials initially said the Stage Two water restrictions would likely be lifted at the end of the summer.

The City has implemented Stage 1 restrictions every summer from April 1- Sept. 30 since 2006, but this year they have added watering on certain days to Stage 1 restrictions so the City can track water usage.  This summer was the first time Lubbock has imposed Stage 2 restrictions.

Stage 1 restrictions that will take effect on August 20th include:

  • Watering only between midnight–10 a.m. and 6 p.m.–midnight on the scheduled days until September 30th.
  • Landscape irrigation allowed 2 assigned days per week
  • Irrigation must be limited to 1 ½ inches of water per zone
  • Irrigation must be without significant runoff
  • City operations and wholesale customers must adhere to restrictions
  • Soaker hoses, drip irrigation, and hand watering is allowed at any time
  • The days that irrigation can occur will continue to be based on the last digit of the house or business address: Monday and Thursday – 3, 4, 9, 0; Tuesday and Friday – 1, 5, 6; Wednesday and Saturday – 2, 7, 8

Although, Lake Alan Henry now provides the City with an additional source of water, it does not totally replace the Lake Meredith water supply, officials say.  

The City of Lubbock asks that all residents and businesses continue to be considerate and efficient with their water usage in an effort to conserve water and reduce overall demand.
