Limited Water Usage Now In Effect For Lubbock

Stage one of Lubbock's adopted water use management plan is now in effect. The plan limits yard watering to two times a week. That's about an inch and a half of water a week. You should only be watering during the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 a.m.

The city says if you follow these guidelines you can still have a healthy lawn. Of course, it will be up to you to monitor your own water usage because city inspectors cannot keep tabs on everyone. While stage one may be operating under the honor system, the city encourages everyone to participate.
