Algal Bloom Suspect for Stinky Water in Mathis

MATHIS - The water is getting back to normal in Mathis more than five days after residents complained it smelled bad and looked odd.

State health experts suspect an algal bloom at Lake Corpus Christi may be to blame.

The city manager in Mathis says a boil notice wasn't issued because the water supply is safe.

Crews are flushing the lines to get rid of the problem.
