LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Some residents in north Lubbock need to continue to boil their water after a water line ruptured on Saturday, Aug. 20.

According to the city of Lubbock, an additional water sample test is being completed, and results are expected within 24 hours.

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 E. Chavez Drive

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