Affinity Water has assured residents in Hatfield that 'aerated' water is not harmful.
Following overnight repair work to a damaged water main, residents in Hatfield say they are now experiencing cloudy water.
But Affinity Water has stated today: “We are aware that some customers are experiencing aerated water due to these works.
“We would like to assure customers that this is not harmful and can be cleared by simply flushing the cold drinking tap.
“A team will be on site later today to complete these works, and during this ongoing repair we do not anticipate any further impact on customers water supplies.
“All customers should remain on drinking water, however if the situation changes we will update this message and text customers to keep them informed.
“We are sorry for any inconvenienced this incident has caused, and will update this message when further information becomes available.”
Last night the water company restored water supply to the area, but was unable to complete repair work due to health and safety.
