For the first time, the recent dry spell is affecting all Lubbock residents. Monday, the City of Lubbock implemented phase one of the Drought Contingency Plan. Under this plan, residents are asked to voluntarily conserve water use. However, if residents don't conserve the city will implement phase two, which would result in mandatory cut backs with restricted watering schedules.
Sandra Offutt, member of the Lubbock Water Conservation Team says, "We don't want to go to that extreme. We'd rather the citizens cut back now and conserve on their own and us not have to regulate it."
Here are a few ways the city says you can use water wisely:
