Drinking Water Problem Corrected in 3 City Areas
Use of Tap Water May Resume in Specific Zone
Customers of the City of Corpus Christi were notified on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, of a problem with our drinking water and were advised to avoid all contact and usage of tap water until further notice.
We are pleased to report that the problem has been corrected in an area of the City that is ZONE 1 Flour Bluff, Padre Island and Calallen. Further investigation into the situation in coordination with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality have indicated that ZONE 1 may resume using the tap water for all drinking, beverage and food preparation (including baby formula and juice), making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes or clothes, washing hands, and bathing.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
The remainder of the City continues to be under the current restrictions.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).
