The City of Lubbock will create master plans for wastewater and for the Lake Alan Henry watershed. “Lake Alan Henry is a very important strategic water supply for the City of Lubbock,” the city said in recent public records. “Approximately 20% of the City’s water supply comes from the Lake currently. In the future, up to 40% of the City’s water supply may come from the Lake,” the city said. “Currently with the Lake Alan Henry infrastructure, we can only take about 20 percent of our needs,” said Lubbock’s Director of Water Utilities, Aubrey Spear. “The lake has a two-year safe yield –16,000 acre-feet [5,213,620,000 gallons]. Currently we’re only able to use about half that.
