Lubbock has to spend $4 million dollars in the near future to fix the dam at Lake Alan Henry.
According to public records the dam must be fixed because it's required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
The so-called "dry side" of the dam has suffered erosion. Not only must the dam be repaired back to its original condition, but the city has to put up a system to prevent the same damage from happening again.
Companies wishing to perform the work for the city must submit a proposal by October 11th.
After that the work is supposed to take a little less than nine months to complete.
