PORTLAND (KIII NEWS) - The City of Portland confirmed Sunday that water has been restored to the city, but the water boil advisory remains in effect. All water needs to be boiled prior to consumption.
Portland City Manager Randy Wright joined 3News at 10 p.m. by phone Saturday and explained that the San Patricio Municipal Water District had technical issues upon Harvey's landfall and were unable to keep up with demands. Wright said the city was at just under 200,000 gallons of water and needed to maintain pressure in the system to keep it safe, so they discontinued water service to the city.
On Sunday morning the water delivery issues were taken care of and water turned back on, but again, the water boil advisory for the city of Portland remains in effect.
