The people of Rio Bravo are facing a water boil alert. A photo has been circulating online in the past 24 hours showing bottled water on sale for a price many find extreme. We posted it to our Facebook page and as you can see the reaction has been strong with many expressing outrage. This is the photo in question showing water being sold at the Rio Bravo “Family Dollar” selling for six dollars a pack. There were some Rio Bravo residents who were angry at the “Family Dollar” store claiming they were taking advantage of the water boiling notice. We drove down there to ask why it was priced so high the store manager says the water in the picture is the price provided from the Pepsi and Coke company which they can't change. The water they provided is only four dollars and with a coupon its three; and like we mentioned Rio Bravo and El Cenizo are under a boil water notice, but that isn't stopping some residents from still having a good time.
