The John T. Montford Dam was built from 1991 through 1993, and impounds water in the South Fork of the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River.
Due to the increased water supply now available, Stage 2 drought restrictions will be reduced to Stage 1 drought restrictions beginning on August 20th.
Water mains to be flushed are in the area of Norfolk Avenue and 97th Street.
This part of the project is expected to take two months to complete.
The City of Lubbock has also decided that the situation is dire enough that proven violators will no longer be given warnings, but rather a $200 fine from Code Enforcement.
The City will soon be able to add Lake Alan Henry to its list of water supplies, which has a scheduled completion date of June 2012.
Lake Alan Henry, located 45 miles south of Lubbock, has new regulation for black bass. The new minimum length limit for smallmouth bass is 14 inches and the daily bag limit is five fish.
