Water Conservation Council
The Chamber’s Water Conservation Council brings together entities including the City of Lubbock, Texas AgriLife Extension-Lubbock County, High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1, Texas Tech University, and business and industry members of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.
The Water Conservation Council was formed in March 2004 – as a subcommittee of the Agriculture Committee – based on various concerns, namely rule of capture and water rights in general. The committee has grown considerably in the past few years, and it remains a diverse group of people from all the above entities. Committee members meet monthly to discuss current water issues and work on several projects focusing on education about conserving water in both agriculture and at homes and businesses.
The committee meets quarterly at the Chamber Office. We have speakers available to present information on water conservation for your clubs and organizations. If you are interested, email Norma Ritz Johnson, Vice President of Legislative Affairs.
