When will drinkable water return to Beaumont?

In the city of Beaumont, the question most crucial to almost everyone? Drinkable water. When will it be back? It makes the world turn, so to speak.

Now, 12 News has learned the process may be further along than you know. Is it going to take six weeks? 12 News set out to verify if that is the case with an engineer familiar with Beaumont's water supply.

He believes we are in the last stages of having drinking water from the tap back in play.

Lamar University Environmental Engineering Director Dr. Jerry Lin is not recommending using Beaumont water as drinking water at this time.
