Some water restrictions lifted in Corpus Christi

Many Corpus Christi residents are still unable to use their water after restrictions were set Thursday. However, the city and the EPA are lifting several bans, so that some areas can now use the tap water to wash their clothes and take showers.

Friday afternoon city leaders held a press conference releasing information that the east, west and south ends of town had specific restrictions lifted.


For residents like Michael Harris, who are having to grab free cases of water at the donation centers, these have been a stressful last few days. "You know for those of us who like to be clean and stuff like that, when you're not able to use your own water, you know, it's really very difficult", says Harris.


City officials say that between 3 and 24 gallons of an ingredient found in asphalt got into the cities water supply after a back flow incident occurred.
