San Antonio Water System

The San Antonio Water System is driving a 5,000-gallon tanker truck of potable water for distribution to residents in Crystal City Friday afternoon.

Crystal City is under a boil water notice after sediment from their water tower ran into the town’s system resulting in discolored water.

The San Antonio Food Bank is also providing emergency water to residents.  The first distribution of 20 pallets occurred on Thursday. A distribution of 40 pallets will be delivered Friday, and another delivery on Monday.
