We have now identified the cause of the interruption to water supply affecting customers in LOCATION.
A team is now on-site at LOCATION to carry out the repair and start to return supplies to normal.
Please be aware that you may experience no water supply or low / intermittent water pressure. You may also experience discoloured water.
At present we expect to complete the repair in a timeframe which means we do not plan to provide bottled water at distribution locations.
Excavation work will need to take place to expose and repair the damaged the water pipe. Traffic management will be required before this work takes place. This will ensure the safety of the public and our team.
We anticipate that traffic management will be in place within approximately (timeframe) minutes.
