Lufkin Water is Safe to Drink

Even though the water in the City of Lufkin still has some sand in it, the water is safe.

But, you should use a filter before drinking it.

Assistant City Manager Keith Wright and his crew are still trying to figure out how so much sand was able to get into one of the city's wells.  Experts should be able to provide more answers about the water problems within the next few days.

Until then, remember the water in Lufkin is safe to drink. But, you should use a filter before drinking it.
