“Our repair team are on site and have isolated the burst water main in order to start the necessary repairs.

“We anticipate Brownfields will be without a water supply until the repairs are completed.

“All properties in the surrounding area should have water, however this may be at a lower pressure than usual during peak demand whilst the repairs are on going.

“We will provide an update and estimate on when this work should be completed as soon as one becomes available.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.”
