Water in North Brownsville Safe to Drink

Posted in

Following reports of cloudy water in areas in north Brownsville, the Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) performed tests and determined the water is safe for customers to drink and use.

BPUB received reports of cloudy water on Wednesday night and sent personnel to perform tests and try to relieve the situation by flushing hydrants in the area.

Test results on water samples taken from that area showed that the water is safe to drink. BPUB will continue to monitor the situation to ensure there are no changes. BPUB crews will also continue to look for what caused this incidence of cloudy water.

The following streets were known to be affected: Ridgeline Drive, East Alton Gloor Boulevard, Alta Mesa Boulevard, Las Palomas Street, Pinion Drive and West San Marcelo Boulevard. Other streets in that area may have also experienced similar water conditions.

If any residents continue to experience a problem or notice evidence of a water line break, BPUB asks residents to please call (956) 983-6300 or visit the BPUB website at www.brownsville-pub.com to report a problem.
