Corpus Christi Issues Boil Water Order

By  | 

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - The city of Corpus Christi on Tuesday issued a boil water notice -- as a precaution -- in part related to recent heavy rain.

Corpus Christi earlier this month began a chlorine treatment program to stabilize its water system.

A statement says the city has made every effort to investigate water samples to identify the possibility of broken pipes, backflow irrigation problems or other issues.

Four samples areas turned up with bacteria, but retesting cleared three of the areas.

Authorities say results are pending on the retesting of the fourth area.

Corpus Christi officials say the city is committed to bring the water supply back to normal levels as soon as possible.

Corpus Christi's population tops 279,000.
