The City of Lubbock has made plans for its residents to have water for the next 100 years by diversifying its water supplies. The main source of water for the city is groundwater. This groundwater comes from two places:  the Candian River Municipal Water Authority's Roberts County Well Field and the City's Bailey County Well Field. In addition, to our groundwater supplies, we also receive water from Lake Meredith and Lake Alan Henry.  

The city is also proactive in educating the public about ways we can conserve our water supplies.  Conservation and a diversified water portfolio will help ensure that that citizens of Lubbock to have water for decades to come.
