City Water customer may notice ‘earthy’ tones in water


CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Water utility personnel have responded to calls received from water customers in the Annaville and Callallen area regarding an earthy taste and odor in their city’s drinking water. This is the result of the increased water supply to the Colorado River from the Mary Rhodes Pipeline last week.

After being treated at the ON Stevens Water Treatment Plant (ONSWTP), this water arrived at customers yesterday. The water from the Colorado River is safe to drink, as is the water that comes out of the city’s ON Stevens water treatment plant.

Water utility personnel took immediate action to reduce feed to the Mary Rhodes Pipeline from the Colorado River and make greater use of the Lake Texana supply.

Residents should see their water return to normal within a few days.
