Interruptions to your water supply - Bushey Heath - WD23
Saturday 23rd May 2020
The water supply has restored to the usual level of service, as the water supply issue is related to high demand, we will continue to monitor this.
Should you experience any discoloured or aerated water which is not uncommon following a mains interruption, we recommend that you leave a mains fed tap running for approximately 5-10 minutes. Discolouration of the water is caused by small particles of iron which are within the mains and disturbed during interruptions.
Cloudy water is caused by air that becomes trapped in the mains, neither of these are harmful to your health. To see more about how to clear discoloured or aerated water why not watch our short video guide here
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by this incident and would like to thank our customers for their patience during this incident.
This message will be removed after 12:55
If you are in the above area and are experiencing a reduction of your water pressure or loss of supply, this is due to much higher demand for water at present due to the exceptionally hot weather.
We expect your water supply to be restored to normal pressure later this evening.
We are asking all customers to try and keep their water usage to a minimum during this time to reduce the demand on our network.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
