The City of Lubbock will be flushing water mains in South Lubbock over the next two weeks.

The flushing is required by regulatory agencies prior to putting the Lake Alan Henry Water Supply Pipeline into service.

Water mains to be flushed are in the area of Norfolk Avenue and 97th Street.

Water customers are not expected to be affected during the flushing process.

The City released a statement Wednesday afternoon, saying “The City is committed to water conservation and care will be exercised to limit the quantity of water released to what is required to ensure a safe drinking water system.”
