In Corpus Christi, Texas, an industrial chemical leak at an asphalt plant led to widespread fear of water contamination. There were four unconfirmed reports of systems related to water contamination. City water towers were flushed out to ensure safety and the company was investigating the issue. The harmful chemical called indulin can burn eyes, skin, and the respiratory tract. “You don’t expect to see it in water,” said Terry Clawson, a spokesman for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Due to recent crises, a ban is being implemented till a resolution is reached. Read more about the chemical indulin and other Corpus Christi here.
