Corpus Christi mayor talks about water problem
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - Corpus Christi's mayor says he doesn't think the release of a harmful chemical into the water system extended beyond an industrial district, but officials are still waiting for results from testing by a state agency.
Mayor Dan McQueen said Thursday evening that they are "pushing very hard to get our water turned on as soon as we can."
He says the city will hold another news conference later Thursday evening after a meeting between city and state officials and officials from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Environmental Protection Agency.
He says, "We haven't confirmed that this product is even in the flow system."
