LUBBOCK, Texas — Delayed by inclement weather over the last few months, construction on the new Central Lubbock water tower resumed Saturday with the raising of the elevated storage tank bowl.
Landmark Structures raised the bowl atop the concrete pedestal, which is located at 50th Street and Joliet Avenue.
Lubbock residents were invited to the observe the work from a safe distance.
An older water tower at the same location was demolished back in February 2020.
A similar water tower was completed by the City of Lubbock at 104th Street and Milwaukee Avenue back in April.
Three additional water towers are planned at U.S. Highway 84 and North Quaker Avenue, 3rd Street and University Avenue, and 84th Street and Avenue P.
City officials said these three will hopefully be completed in 2022, once the funding has been secured.
All of these towers will hold around two million gallons of water.
