Laredo, TX—Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) released the following statement in response to the boil water notice in Laredo:

“I have been in close contact with Mayor Saenz and City Manager, Robert Eads, to discuss the ongoing boil water notice. Additionally, my team has been in communication with the Texas Division of Emergency Management, and the Texas National Guard, to ensure that Laredo residents continue to have access to clean, safe drinking water,” said Congressman Cuellar. “We must learn the root cause of the low chlorine levels that led to the initial boil water notice to ensure this never happens again.
