The San Antonio Water System is moving ahead with cleaning out its pipes.
If you see water freely flowing from fire hydrants and water tanks, don't panic. SAWS is allowing water to rush out into the streets as it continues its work to merge with the old BexarMet water supply systems.
About 375 hydrants on the south side will be gushing water for the next few days.
Officials say the work could effect the taste and smell of the water.
They also say since they are changing the disinfection method those customers who have live fish should determine if they need to make changes regarding water treatment for their pets.
SAWS officials say the old BexarMet systems used chloramines to disinfect the water, which can result in reduced chlorine levels. Now they will be using free chlorine disinfection.
They say the change in the waters should only last three to four days. SAWS crews will not have to access homes or residences during this part of the process.
In the time being a spokesperson for SAWS says those wanting to cool off are safe splashing around in the running water - so long as you are off the street.
