Management at Buena Vista-Bethel Special Utility District issued the following notice earlier today to its customers:
Buena Vista-Bethel is now under a BOIL WATER notice we cannot get power to any of our wells and they are frozen. We do not have phone service either. We are doing all we can but under the weather conditions there is not much we can do. We are asking everyone who does have any water please be conservative and boil. Our payment system is set up through the internet and is off and on so please keep trying. We are so sorry for the inconvenience.
The SUD serves an area west of Waxahachie that formed out of two rural communities: Buena Vista and Bethel. It serves about 1,500 customers, according to its website https://bvbsud.com/.
