Developer To Sue City of Lubbock Over Water Contamination

A developer claims the drinking water at Lake Ransom Canyon is contaminated. That is why the Joseph Adam Corporation is planning to sue the City of Lubbock.

The corporation purchased 70 acres of land for residential development at Lake Ransom Canyon. At the time, the corporation says City of Lubbock reports showed the water was normal.

Now, reports from the Texas Commission on Environment Quality show the nitrate level to be in excess, and because of that, the suit says the developer can not build there  and is suing for nearly $1.3 million dollars in damages.
