LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Water service has been restored to customers affected by the ruptured water line on Saturday, August 20th. A boil water notice will remain in effect until required testing has been completed. The public will be notified once samples are cleared. Only those in the affected areas will need to boil their water.

The areas affected are:

  • Hillcrest Country Club subdivision between Kent and Purdue Streets and University and Boston Avenues
  • The businesses along the North University Avenue corridor north of Loop 289 including X-FAB, AT&T and the State Supported Living Center
  • The area north of Erskine Street and south of Loop 289 between North Avenue X and Cesar Chaves Drive

Residents should bring water to a full rolling boil for at least 1 minute to kill any germs that may be in the water due to the disruption. 

City of Lubbock Public Works Maintenance Crews worked through the night Sunday to install a valve on the ruptured water line at North University Avenue near Cesar Chaves Drive. This allowed water service to the affected areas to be restored.

Additional work on the ruptured line must still be completed. Due to that work, southbound traffic on North University Avenue is reduced to one lane at Cesar Chaves Drive. Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes and use caution if driving in the area.
