CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Corpus Christi has lifted a boil water advisory after parts of the city had issues with low chlorine levels for nearly two weeks.

A city statement Wednesday afternoon ended the boil water requirements.

Authorities say water samples for all areas exceeded chlorine level requirements for 48 hours. The last areas under the advisory included a stretch from Airline Road to Texas A&M-Corpus; Christi.

Experts say lower than normal chlorine levels can naturally occur as a result of the high summer temperatures and low water usage.

The initial boil water advisory came Sept. 4 for parts of Corpus Christi detected to have low chlorine levels. Crews began injecting additional chlorine, flushing water hydrants and installing new water lines.
