Here is the latest release from the City of San Angelo about the water restrictions.

Yesterday, the City of San Angelo issued a do-not-use water advisory across the city and for all customers within the City water utility system after investigating foul-smelling water samples from the PaulAnn area. The samples were expedited to labs to determine the cause of the odor.

The Water Department and City leadership have been working tirelessly on this issue with engineering and legal consultants from Austin and Abilene, as well as with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Lower Colorado River Authority to resolve any public health concerns in an expedient fashion.

The City would like to assure everyone that we have this under control. As of now, we will be lifting restrictions in the area that we refer to as the high plane.

As of now the contaminate in our water is still unknown. We are continuing to work with the TCEQ to lift restrictions on more of the City but the timeliness of that is dependent upon the LCRA labs and the administrators at the TCEQ.

The test results are now expected sometime tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 10. We know that this is an inconvenience for everyone, but the health and safety of our citizens is our top priority right now. We are doing everything we can to restore clean, safe water to this community.
