It's been 10 days since the City of Beeville has been under a water boil advisory.
City officials are working with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to bring the water levels to safety standards.
City Manager, William Delibero says the issue was reported when a resident complained of yellow water in their faucet.
We're told, after testing TCEQ found low levels of chlorine that could be linked to old pipes and the hot weather. "The area where the call came in we did replace a block and half of pipe from old cast iron pipe to new pbc pipe," said Delibero.
The city is undergoing a full chlorine water treatment which will help flush the water through the entire system and hopefully bring the chlorine levels up.
Repairs are being done in the Downtown area of town, specifically N. Tyler Street. TCEQ is testing frequently but there is no time frame when the water boil will be lifted.
"I apologize for putting people through this situation that they have to go through and well do the best we can to compensate them for that," said Delibero.
Residents can pick up gallons of water at the Beeville Community Center at 111 East Corpus Christi Street. Water will be distributed Friday, August 11th starting at 8 a.m.
