CRMWA Aqueduct to Lubbock Falters, City Prepared
The City of Lubbock will have to rely on what water resources it has on-hand for the next two weeks as the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority aqueduct that brings in fresh water from Roberts County is down.
City officials say the emergency operations group prepared for this eventuality during the snowstorm.
A statement from Lubbock’s director of water resources, Aubrey Spear, read:
We have increased our water supply from Lake Alan Henry and the Bailey County well field to supply 100% of our water needs. Additionally, we currently have a 10 day water reserve in our terminal storage reservoir and CRMWA has a 7 day reserve. Lake Alan Henry also carries a 15 day emergency supply. These water reserves do not anticipate any restrictions on water use. We are confident that our water supply will not be disrupted and that our citizens will continue to have uninterrupted water service.”
