Block House Creek Winter Storm Update

Date posted: 2/16/2021

Block House MUD provides the following update regarding essential services and winter storm status: 

Water: At this time, BHC is not under a boil water notice. However, this could change as BHMUD receives its water from Cedar Park and some municipalities in the area are seeing some challenges in treating water with the ERCOT rolling blackouts. If you are maintaining a constant drip at your faucets, the dripping water will allow water to run through your pipes to avoid freezing. If you do not have water at this time, your pipes may already be frozen. In the event you have a water emergency, please contact Crossroads Utilities for assistance - www.crossroadsus.com/ Please note that Crossroads is experiencing higher than normal call volume and may have limited response due to the inclement weather. 

TDS Trash Service: As of this positing, BHC trash service provider Texas Disposal Systems has not made a change in pickup service for tomorrow as seen on the Waste Wizard - www.texasdisposal.com/waste-wizard/. However, as the day progresses and conditions remain the same, it is likely that trash service will be moved or discontinued for the week. Please wait to place your carts at the curb until a determination has been made by TDS. TDS has indicated if trash is not picked up this week they will pick up trash “beyond the normal limits” with additional bags or containers on the next pickup.   

Roads: Please stay off the roads and streets. Many roads have been closed and any travel is discouraged for the public. Only essential workers should be out on the roads – so please don’t endanger your life or others. For additional information about road conditions go to www.drivetx.org 

or www.wilco.org/Departments/Infrastructure/County-Engineer-Road-and-Bridge/Road-Closures-and-Detours.

BHMUD will continue to monitor the storm and the effects on BHC and provide any updates as they become available. Please check on your neighbors to make sure they are OK – some people are not as active and have not prepared for this event and may need your help to stay safe and warm – resident’s health and safety during this epic storm is of our utmost concern.
