Your water will be back on

We’re really sorry for the problems with your water. We’ve fixed the burst water main and you’ll see your water flowing back to normal soon.

Appearance of your water

If your water is discoloured or cloudy, don’t worry this is normal. We know it doesn’t look nice, but it’s not harmful and you can help by running your cold tap until it’s clear. To find out more, please click here.

We updated this message at 9:00 and we'll remove it after 13:00 


What we're doing

Work to repair the burst water main on Marsh Lane is ongoing. Due to the complexity of the work, our team need additional fittings before they can complete the repair.

Whilst the repairs are ongoing, customers may experience lower pressure than normal during peak times, such as mornings and evenings when water is in higher demand.

Traffic Management

We currently have 4-way traffic lights set up at the junction of Marsh Lane and Old Church Lane to ensure our teams can work safely on site. We're sorry for any delays caused.

What you can do 

Due to the hot weather, it is important to remain hydrated.  We need your help by not using your garden hose or anything that’s non-essential. For more info visit: affinitywater.co.uk/highdemand

We're really sorry for any disruption caused by these repairs and are working to get things back to normal for you as soon as possible.
