At 2:30 this afternoon, the City of Lubbock lifted the Boil Water Notice that had been in effect for the past 32 hours.

The Boil Water Notice was put into effect due to a drop of water pressure in the aftermath of the Lubbock Blackout.

Lubbock residents and businesses are now free to drink and use water out of the tap.  Many restaurants had to close or change portions of their menus on Saturday during the Boil Water Notice.

Cities that use water from the City of Lubbock: New Deal, Buffalo Springs Lake, Lake Ransom Canyon, and the Reese Redevelopment Authority have also canceled their boil water notices.
