SAN ANGELO, TX – Although it is not official yet, city officials have hope in putting an end to the boil water notice in San Angelo on Tuesday afternoon.
According to the City of San Angelo's Water Utilities Director Allison Strube, on Feb. 22, over 50 water samples from across town have been collected and tested.
If all the samples return uncontaminated then the majority of citizens will be able to start using water again without boiling it.
"We are hoping sometime around lunch or after lunch tomorrow depending on what time all of the samples come back," said Strube. "Hopefully we get everything tested this afternoon and we will be looking for sometime tomorrow afternoon with rescinding it. (the boil water notice)"
The City of San Angelo has been dealing with water troubles since Feb. 8. The initial issue was the contamination of water near the Paul Ann area. This problem still has not been resolved.
Officials also stated that there have been a number of complaints of issues with water color and smell. They claim the situation can be resolved by running your water once the boil water has ended.
Until then citizens are asked to continue to conserve water by taking short showers, only running one load of laundry per day, and by slowly easing back into their normal schedule.
