OLD RIVER, Texas – Residents in one Texas community say they are afraid to drink the water coming out of the faucet.

“I just, I can’t believe it,” Tara Miles told KTRK. “We pay to have nice, clean drinking water. You don’t see that here in 2015, that there’s worms in the water.”

Miles says she discovered worms crawling around in her bathtub on Tuesday, and soon heard from neighbors that they were experiencing the same thing.

“He undid the filter to our faucet and it was full [of worms,]” said Sandy Cook.

City officials say they have called the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, who will inspect the water supply this week.

J and S Water Company, which supplies water and sewer services to the area, say they did have a system failure a few days ago that shut the flow of water off for about 16 hours.

However, owners insist that it was not long enough for worms to get into the water supply.

On Wednesday, the mayor and residents planned to meet with water company officials, but no one from the company showed up to the meeting.
