Rabies vaccination, although state-required, is an immune-enhancing vaccine and merely raises an animal's immune system from contracting the disease, but does not guarantee the animal can not contract rabies. Therefore, Texas law requires that all cats and dogs involved in a bite or a scratch be quarantined from the date and time of the incident.
The fees involved in the reclaiming of an animal offsets the cost of care and feed for the animals. Also, State Law requires that if any animal is not current on its rabies vaccination, all animals must be current on rabies vaccination prior to being released. To reclaim your pet, call the Ingleside Police Department Non-Emergency number at 361-776-2531 for an appointment with Animal Control Officers.

Hot South Texas summer weather results in rapid algae growth in our surface water reservoirs. When the problem is detected in our system, the San Patricio Municipal Water District controls the problem by using potassium permanganate at their water treatment plant. As much as the problem of taste and odor may be apparent in the water, the water is safe to drink.
Water that is refrigerated in a sealed container does taste better as it has been given time to settle. It is recommended to keep a jug of water at all times in the refrigerator. This also gives you the benefit of always having a cool drink of water.
Hard water is defined by the amount of calcium and magnesium present in the water; hard water has a relatively high level as compared to soft water which has a low level. Our water supply is considered moderately hard.
Fluoride, which is a substance added to reduce cavities, is added to our water. The American Dental Association recommends a concentration of 1 part per million. Bottled water usually does not contain fluoride and therefore, is not recommended for children. Ingleside’s water has a fluoride range of 0.20 with a targeted average of 0.80 milligrams per liter.
Water that is cloudy is often the result of air that is trapped in the water. Once the water is drawn from the faucet and allowed to settle, the water will appear clear. Air bubbles do not affect the quality of water; however, you can report this problem to the Public Works Department at 351-776-7315.
The water supply from the San Patricio Municipal Water District is safe to drink. We recognize that it is your own personal choice to purchase water purification devices. It should be noted that these water purification devices have been known to cause problems in the quality of drinking water due to the lack of proper filter replacement. These devices are not tested or regulated by the State or federal government.
The San Patricio Municipal Water District does use chlorine to disinfect our drinking water. Chlorine is used in municipal water treatment since 1908 and is the most effective way to ensure that water stays disinfected as it travels through water delivery systems. Chlorine prevents water-borne epidemics such as cholera, typhoid, and hepatitis.
Our water meets and exceeds all federal, state, and local standards and has received the highest possible A Superior rating by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission.
