SAN ANTONIO – Ricardo Chavira, an actor most known for his roles in “Desperate Housewives” and “Selena: The Series” on Netflix, has given a shoutout the San Antonio Water System for their work in helping to restore service in the area after last week’s winter storm.

In a tweet on Saturday, Chavira said that he had not had water since Monday.

“I’ve been without water since Monday,” Chavira said. “I know it’s frustrating but this is what SAWS is dealing with right now.”

In photos tweeted by Chavira, you can see massive ice chunks being removed from pipes in the San Antonio area by SAWS employees.

“There are still huge chunks of ice inside of pipes, blocking water flow and cracking pipes. Large chunks of ice = no water flow,” Chavira said. “Thank you SAWS.”

According to IMDB, Chavira is from San Antonio. He is married and he has two children.
