Service update

Discolouration of water supply

This discolouration is due to harmless iron oxide deposits which collect on the inside of water mains and have been stirred up during essential works.

Our engineers are currently working in the area to resolve the problem as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Find out more about discolouration.
