Texas City Loses Water Supply "Indefinitely"

HOUSTON TX

Beaumont, which has a population of over 100,000 people, lost both its main and secondary water supplies 30 August. Hurricane Harvey caused the Neches River to overflow, which damaged the city’s water pumps, according to city officials. The city’s secondary water source, which is located at the Loeb wells in Hardin County, is also offline. City officials said the outage is indefinite, pending inspection of the damaged pumps, which they are unable to do until the water recedes.
