BASTROP, Texas (KXAN) — St. David’s Emergency Center in Bastrop is temporarily closed due to a water outage impacting city residents. The center has transitioned to a backup water supply and is expected to reopen at midnight.
In the event of a medical emergency, residents should call 911. For anyone who shows up to the closed emergency center with a life-threatening condition, there is an advanced life support team waiting on site. Anyone else with non-life threatening conditions will be redirected to either St. David’s South Austin Medical Center at 901 W. Ben White Blvd. in Austin or Seton Smithville Regional Hospital at 1201 Hill Rd. in Smithville.
St. David’s South Austin Medical Center CEO Todd Steward says they will update the community when the emergency center is back open.
A boil water notice, which initially covered the entire city, was reduced at around 2:20 p.m. to include only the area east of Arena Drive to Tahitian Drive, which includes the emergency center.
