City of Houston asks residents to minimize water use after plant floods
HOUSTON – The City of Houston issued a warning about drinking water in the area Monday.
The city said the water is safe, but warns that one of the water plants is experiencing flooding.
The plant remains operational, but the city is asking people to minimize water use at this time.
If you are experiencing discolored water, the city said it is most likely caused by iron. Iron in drinking water is not a health concern, but can cause discoloration and is often the result of aging pipes made of iron, according to the city.
KPRC will provide updates when they become available.
