SAN ANGELO, TX — The City of San Angelo is issuing an Emergency Disaster Declaration and activating the City and County Emergency Operations Plan, which allows us to request funding and assistance from the State of Texas if needed. In doing this, the City can request needed resources such as:
- A financial disaster expert from the state for future emergencies
- Bottled water for distribution.
The City has issued disaster declarations in the recent past for the Bradford tornado, other water main breaks and also for COVID-19.
The City of San Angelo Water Utilities Department issued a "do not use" order for city water flowing out of taps citywide due to an undetermined contamination. The water in the PaulAnn area began smelling like mothballs yesterday. TCEQ said the commission is looking at nephthalene as a possible culprit.
Restaurants and bars were ordered closed.
