CORPUS CHRISTI -The City of Corpus Christi has issued a “Discontinue Tap Water” notification. Due to an unknown chemical substance contaminating the drinking water in the city, officials are urging residents to discontinue use of all tap water supplies until further notice.
City officials say, the case can be traced to a recent backflow incident in the industrial district. Only bottled water should be used for all drinking, beverage, and food preparation. Boiling, freezing, filtering, adding chlorine, or other disinfectants or letting the water stand will not make the water safe to drink.
