Water Main Burst – Cuts 22,000 Homes of Water.

Councillor Phil Bateman said tonight “With Severn Trent having difficulty supplying water to homes in Wednesfield. I thought that you would like to receive the latest information I have with regards to the situation

A mains burst has left 22,000 homes without water or with reduced water pressure. across Wolverhampton and Wednesfield.

Severn Trent Water Company tell me that they have teams working on the re-supply. They are also looking to re-route water to the areas that are suffering. All of which is substantial work.

There have been 13 homes flooded during this incident, I am sure we are all aware of the problems that these home owners in the Stow Lawn area are having and our thoughts will be with those families.

Whilst there is not a definitive time for our water here in Wednesfield, to get back to normal. The company has informed me they are confident that later tonight – they will have got on top of the problems.

Hope you find this information useful to you.”

I will keep people informed as and when I get information via my Social Media sites.
