If your water is a rusted color don't be alarmed. According to City Manager Michael Esparza, the City of Alice is working on finding a leak in front of the City Hall and are flushing out fire hydrants that don't get routinely used.

The pressurization method used to find the leak with the combination of routine maintenance on the fire hydrant is causing "an off-color" in the city's water in the those specific work areas.

Esparza said the water department will be doing regular maintenance on several fire hydrants throughout the city in the next couple of days, but the "water is still safe."
