WARNING SCAM ALERT!!

Some Bedford residents have received phone calls from scammers saying they are with the Bedford Electric Department & that their power would be cut off if payment wasn't made to the caller immediately.

Bedford Electric Department wants to assure residents that they do not call residents in this manner and all payments are to be made only through the Town of Bedford. If residents have any questions regarding their account, please call: 540-587-6057.

Tree Trimming Notice

The Electric Department will be out tree trimming this season. It's necessary to keep right-of-ways clear in order to provide reliable service to customers and make a safe work environment for line workers. Tree interference is the number one cause of outages on the electric system. Please be cooperative and respectful of tree trimming crews working in your area. They will work with residents to minimize the impact on property and respect the environment as they work in the community.
Thank you for your support.
Respectfully, Town of Bedford, Electric Department

Hydrant Maintenance

The Bedford Fire Department will be performing hydrant maintenance throughout the summer. During this process you may experience some discolored water, which is caused by sediment in the lines that is disturbed when the hydrant is opened. Discolored water should clear up after running your faucet for a few minutes. Please call the BRWA at: 540-586-7679 if you experience any difficulties during testing.
