Flooding has left Texas with only two operating water treatment plants

RIVERSIDE, Texas — Families in flood-ravaged Texas are relying on a few well-equipped facilities in the region to treat their water.

But the only ones that have water on tap, according to a news release issued by the Water Development Authority of Texas, are those in Riverside and Fort Worth.

The Riverside facility has two wells, while Fort Worth has two and Riverside has one.

The Fort Worth facility has four wells, and Riverside is relying on three.

The San Antonio-based Water Development Board of Texas is working with the Texas Water Development Commission to assess and provide assistance to families in need of water, the release states.
