Update: Residents in the Eldridge View area say three weeks later they’re still waiting to get clean water after a boil order was issued back on July 3rd.
Some Houston residents have gone two weeks and counting without drinkable water.
The 2200 families in Eldridge View area say they received a notice back on July 3 that they would have to boil their water.
This comes after managers at Harris county mud 158 say the water, which comes from the city of Houston, did not meet state standards.
John Montgomery with the mud says they’re hoping to get clearance from the state to life the order.
This is while homeowners say they’ve had enough of waiting.
Kristal Gonzales says, “I’m scared to cook to be honest because i was sick Fourth of July weekend and I don’t know if it had anything to do with any of the problems with the water.”
Mud officials say while they don’t believe the water is dangerous they just can’t lift the ban until they get state approval.
