On Thursday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Mika Wyatt from Agrilife Extension spoke with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the city’s upcoming water restrictions.

Despite all the rain the city received over Memorial Day weekend, the City of Lubbock will be going into Stage 2 water restrictions this Sunday, June 1st. Wyatt explained that, while the rain was much appreciated, it did very little to raise the levels of Lake Alan Henry, which is why the restrictions were first put into place. He added that the restriction was also put in place to circumvent the increased water usage in the summer months.

Wyatt pointed out that at the moment, it doesn’t appear as though the city will go into Stage 3 restrictions, which would have a sever impact on landscaping and outdoor watering.

Under the Stage 2 restrictions, outdoor watering is restricted to only one day a week, and the day citizens can water is determined by the last digit of the address. Watering will also only be permitted between midnight and 10 AM, and between 6 PM to 11:59. To learn more about the Stage 2 water restrictions, visit the City of Lubbock website at
