I've lived in Texas my whole life. Started visiting gulf as kid...first Galveston,then Corpus then S Padre. S Padre WAS beautiful but is so incredibly touristy now. I love the islands with the canals behind the gorgeous homes. They have rentals and it's really growing. I would live over the causeway and avoid the city. You can go to the city to shop or sightsee. You can drive pretty far south and have nice pristine beaches that are usually empty. They have their own little paradise out there. The cities crime rate is pretty high. Last time I was there the city was pretty dirty and a little scary. Go south or north of the "city" meaning old part as far as living there.

It's kind of ironic that water is such a big concern and Corpus Christi just had asphalt chemicals get into the water supply

I don't know that ironic is the word for it. Frustrating maybe.
Multiple issues.
1.)This is again like chicken little, when somewhere between 3 and 24 gallons of a known non-carcinogen, non-teratogen maybe got into the water. You'll note that the last one was an "in case of" ban that didn't show actual pathogens either.
2.)We still don't have a proper plan for if and when an actual disaster happens.
3.)The information is less than a trickle from the powers that be
