UPDATE: Burst water main in Hastings

Burst water main


We’re really sorry again for the disruption caused by our emergency works to a burst water main in the Hastings area. Most of our affected customers should have their supply back. 

It was a complex burst and a very large pipe, so you may still notice the following today as supplies return… 

• Discolouration. To clear this and use water as normal, run taps for a few minutes. 

• Low pressure. This should return during the day. You may find pressure differs from tap to tap, but it is fine to use water as normal.

• A very small number of homes still have no water, which could be down to an airlock either in our system or in the home.  To clear this, please run all taps for five minutes and if it doesn’t clear after this time, call us on 0330 303 0368.

We’re continuing to deliver bottled water to our vulnerable customers who are still affected, and if you think you should be on our Priority Services Register, please call us on 0330 303 0277 or register on our website

Thanks again for your patience while our teams have been working as quickly and safely as possible on this emergency.
