Sunset Residents On Day Five With No Running Water

*Editor's Note:  A piece of video showing the business sign of A&V Water and All American Water was used at the end of the original on air story.  That company has nothing to do with servicing or maintaining the water service in question.  The utility provider is Texas Rain, headquartered in Granbury, TX.
 
 
(Sunset, TX)  Residents in Sunset, Texas say their water service company, Texas Rain, has failed to contact them about the interruption in their water service, and their only option is to leave voicemails, that has gone unreturned.
 
Sunset Resident, Hailey Hachtel said "If you're going to own a business, a water business and have a city, take care of your responsibilities as a company and take care of us." 
 
Hachtel said  when her family returned home Wednesday night, they realized the water was off, and six days later, it's still not on.
 
"For five days, we've had nothing but probably a trickle and low water pressure or nothing at all," Hachtel. 
 
Sunset Trading Post is the only cafe in town and workers there say having water is a necessity.
 
Sunset Trading Post worker, LaMona Howerton said, "We just want water, if they'll just give us some water and keep us water, great. Keep the same company but come on guys, six days without water, that's too long."
 
Sunset resident, Danny Russell said, "My worry is that there's people here who are elderly, who are maybe not mobile and can't just go anywhere to get help."
 
Russell said if there was an emergency such as a house fire, he would be worried not having any water to put it out. 
 
Tom Stone said he moved to Sunset to retire and has been here for three years and said he's never had problems like this before he moved there.
 
"It's been rough, but the thing is this is not the first time. This happens over  and over and over again here at Sunset," said Stone.
