But, as Houston weathers the storm and looks toward recovery, Mayor Sylvester Turner is assuring residents the city water is safe to drink.

As of Sunday afternoon, Houston’s water plants were operating reportedly at nearly 100 percent capacity, and they are expected to continue operating safely throughout Harvey’s effects and aftermath.

According to Houston Public Works, water purification plants continue to operate, providing clean, safe water to Houston residents.

Since the flooding started, the city of Houston began to work diligently to fight rumors they were going to turn off water services.

Despite those early reports, officials are repeatedly assured the public they won’t be shutting off services.
