In rural Texas, water is more precious than oil. For Chappell Hill, its most precious commodity has hung in the balance for years, especially after a leak in 2019 warranted a scuba team to come and perform maintenance on the elevated tank.

When standing under the water tower, rust and corrosion can be seen at the base and on the tank. Chappell Hill water system customers voiced their concerns at the Chappell Hill Water Supply Corporation Board of Directors meeting Thursday, asking for the tank to get fixed sooner rather than later.
