Lubbock Entrepreneur Offers Solution to Water Restriction

A Lubbock businessman says he has a temporary solution to the city's water problem. Just call Barry Joachin, the Water Boy.

Joachin has equipped a truck with special meters and hoses that can blast your property with water, or fill your swimming pool. He says it doesn't take much to quench a lawn's thirst. And the best part, he's not using the city's water supply.

"I have my own water access out at the Lubbock Motor Speedway, where we catch rain water," says Joachin. "So I have my own water supply without going through the city."

The truck carries four thousand gallons of rain water, and Joachin says he can split that load between several houses on one block.

For more information, call Water Boy at (806) 438-1642.
