City Running Blue Waterline from Flour Bluff to Padre Island

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - If you have driven to and from the Island lately, you may have noticed a large blue pipe being stretched along the Laguna Madre.

It turns out, the City is now in the works of completing a $7.3 million project to run a new waterline from Flour Bluff to Padre Island. The idea is to provide better service and alleviate problems that some Island residents have had with low water pressure.

They are also adding a new gas line and fiber optic line for cable communications at the same time. They decided to combine the three projects into one in hopes of saving money and time.

The entire project is said to wrap up this fall.
