Today crews in Waco continued to work on wastewater overflow after Tuesday morning's heavy rainfall.
The storms that tore through Central Texas caused Waco's sewer system to overflow discharging 200,000 gallons of wastewater at 42 locations.
Crews have been working since 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to mitigate the overflowing areas.
"We just have to wait for the rainwater to recede. But they'll put chlorination out and start disinfecting the water as it's overflowing and in some places try to redirect the water if it needs to be," said Jonathan Echols, Waco Water Utilities Services spokesman.
Officials stress there is no reason to believe this will affect people's drinking water.
