Service update

Winchester, Colden Common
Loss of supply/low pressure

Customers in Colden Common may be experiencing poor pressure or a loss of supply.

We believe the problem has now been fixed and supplies should have returned to normal.

However, customers may now experience discolouration of the water supply. This is due to harmless iron oxide deposits which collect on the inside of water mains and have been stirred up during the disruption.

This can be removed by running a mains-fed cold tap, usually the kitchen tap, until the water clears.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this incident.

If you are still experiencing problems, please call our technical contact centre on 0330 303 0368.
