Lake Palestine Water Plant Activation Postponed Again

You'll have to wait at least a few more hours before you can taste the new treated water from Lake Palestine.

The water treatment plant was scheduled to start producing water to Tyler homes and businesses last night. But crews ran into a technical problem. The water department says the problem is now fixed, so water should begin flowing from the plant sometime after 10 tonight.

The plant was shut off earlier this year to get rid of the bad odor and taste in the water, caused by high levels of dead algae.
