Slow Improvement in Corpus Christi Water Crisis

Things are slowly starting to get better in Corpus Christi–where people this week were ordered to stop using tap water for any reason.

“All of this was caused by a third party” Corpus Christi Mayor Dan McQueen said, pointing to the asphalt company blamed for leaking a highly toxic chemical in to the City’s water supply. That company has pledged to help with clean up efforts–but has not taken responsibility for the spill.

Meanwhile, the City said people living in outlying portions of Corpus Christi can once again start using their water.

“Our water teams put together a map, so that everybody can start seeing the boundaries–and our plan moving forward” McQueen said.

Meanwhile, the City has opened several “water pod” locations–which will operate until 8 PM Friday.
