As a result of heavy rains experienced in North Central Texas that have impacted various utilities in the area, Benbrook also experienced a number of sanitary sewer overflows within the wastewater collection system. Benbrook Water Authority crews have been working to contain spills and minimize the impacts of overflows which occurred earlier this week as well as to make repairs where needed. There are currently no active overflows as of October 19, 2018. A Public Notification form previously provided to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality concerning the wastewater discharge can be viewed by following this link.October 19, 2018

BWA customers should be aware that there are several websites that appear to be official BWA sites for making online water bill payments. Websites such as www.doxo.com and bills.mint.com are not affiliated with BWA and BWA has no way to verify payments made to these websites. To ensure that your online payments are made directly to BWA follow these guidelines:
1. Only use the official BWA website (www.bwsa.org) to make your payments. The link on our homepage will take you to our secure server (https://payments.bwsa.org) where you can log in to your BWA account and make a real-time payment. Payments made at the official BWA site will post to your water account immediately.
2. BWA does not charge a fee for making your payment online. If you are attempting to make your payment online and are being charged a convenience fee or service charge, you are not at the official BWA website.
3. At least one of these other websites is using the BWA logo to make it appear more official. If the URL in your web browser’s address bar is not www.bwsa.org or https://payments.bwsa.org then you are not at the official BWA website.September 28, 2018
