The Green Valley Special Utility District, which provides portions of New Braunfels and Guadalupe County with water and wastewater service, reported power outages were affecting internet and phone lines Feb. 17.

The utility said it was aware of remaining water outages and was working to resolve them.

On Feb. 16, GVSUD shared alerts with customers about power outages at its water treatment plants, which it said prevented them from filling up completely to provide adequate pressure within its system.
