BEEVILLE, Texas (AP) — Water has been restored to a South Texas city but a boil advisory remains in effect as officials make sure the system is working properly after storms and human error.

Children in Beeville were returning to school Thursday a day after classes were canceled due to lack of water.

Water service that was out for two days was restored by Wednesday afternoon in Beeville, a city of about 13,000 located 90 miles southeast of San Antonio.

Beeville Mayor David Carbajal has apologized for the lack of water after about a dozen pipelines broke during rainstorms last week. Officials also say a water treatment worker on Sunday put the wrong amount of chemical into the supply.

City officials approved spending up to $75,000 on bottled water for the public.
