CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - State environmental regulators found at least eight violations in the Corpus Christi drinking water system following two boil-supply notices during 2015.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times (https://bit.ly/29wU8ev ) reported Wednesday that official reviews continue of the May boil-water advisory that lasted nearly two weeks. All three boil-water notices involved chlorine issues.

Records show the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has proposed compliance improvements costing more than $503,000, plus $6,000 in penalties - both from the 2015 incidents.

Details are in more than 1,000 pages of communications between the TCEQ and Corpus Christi that were released to the newspaper.

City spokeswoman Kim Womack says the corrective requirements and penalties, provided to the city in April, are being negotiated. Womack had no timetable on when the discussions would conclude.
