Update at 5pm on Monday 11 July
Unfortunately there has been an unexpected outage at the Trust’s main pump station. The water outage has been caused by a leak at the start of the pipeline distribution system as it leaves the main pump station. The precise source of the leak has not yet been identified. The three main pipelines in the area make excavations a very slow process due to the large size, depth and close proximity of the pipelines. The main pumping infrastructure remains fully functional. The main pump station will remain off overnight. Thank you for your understanding.
