In 2018, 10 private companies presented to city of Corpus Christi staff their proposals for alternative water sources for the city.
The city never followed up for more information, including cost, about the companies’ proposals.
However, the city is still pursing a $222.5 million loan from the Texas Water Development Board to build a seawater desalination plant within the Inner Harbor of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel.
City Council members Rudy Garza, Gil Hernandez, Ben Molina and Paulette Guarjardo want to know more about the private companies’ proposals. They submitted a request to add the private-sector 2018 presentations to the Sept. 29 agenda.
