Entire City of Lubbock Expected to Water Lawns By July 4th

Water restrictions are expected to be lifted for all of Lubbock by July 4th. Monday, the city lifted restrictions for residents and businesses north of the Marsha Sharp Freeway inside Loop 289 and east of Indiana Avenue.

Those people may water their lawns once a week. Another portion of the city is expected to get permission to water Tuesday and the remaining portion by Wednesday.

Over the weekend, water quality testing was completed and two water pipelines were returned to service. The pipelines were shut down as part of a major water line relocation project associated with the construction of the Marsha Sharp Freeway.

With the pipelines back in service, city staff hopes to return to stage one of the Water Conservation and Drought Plan within the next twelve days. Stage one allows residents to water lawns twice a week.
