Nederland police: City’s water supply remains safe, secure; garbage collection still delayed

The City of Nederland said early Thursday the rumors spreading via social media regarding the city’s water supply having problems are not true.

Despite the City of Beaumont losing its water supply this morning, Nederland’s water supply is the Lower Neches Valley Authority (LNVA).

“We have been in close contact with them and our water supply is still available,” a Nederland city spokesman said. “If the water supply were to become unavailable, we have storage in the water towers and would ask people to conserve water. But at this time, the water is safe and our water supply is secure.”
