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:
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.
