Notes: The Museum Journal XV.   Conference papers.  Until 1930, Lubbock Lake was an actual lake, fed by a permanent underground spring.  As the population increased and more wells were dug, the underground spring stopped flowing and Lubbock Lake dried up.  Geologically, the site has a distant relationship to Blackwater Draw, the Clovis site.  The site, now within the boundaries of the city of Lubbock, TX, shows evidence of human occupation over a period of approximately 12,000 years.
