Water tap

The ripple from last week’s storm that took down electric systems and busted water pipes across Brazoria County continues into this week, as several cities wait on testing to lift boil water notices for residents and businesses.

“The city of Sweeny is still operating under a boil water notice but our system is functioning and stable, maintaining pressures in distribution at roughly 50 psi,” said Reese C. Cook, Sweeny city manager. “We have started collecting and sending in our samples for analysis and hope to rescind our boil water notice by the end of the week.”
