GALVESTON, Texas — The blue water is back in Galveston -- just in time for the holiday weekend! This time, it has a green tint.

Galveston residents report it's also crystal clear, a welcome change from the normally muddy water. 

Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected on the island this weekend.
