HOMES LOSE WATER SUPPLY AS MAINS ISOLATED


Homes and businesses in the Newport and Ryde areas could lose their water supply tonight (Wednesday) as Southern Water isolate the mains for essential maintenance.

The water company have warned that customers in the PO30 and PO33 postcodes could lose water altogether between 19:00 and midnight as they make repairs to the vital network.

Contractors are currently working at Stag Lane – where a water main burst earlier on today – and at Dodnor Lane, where a large 450mm water main is currently being replaced due to a leak.

No all homes appear to have been affected by the work so far but residents should be prepared just in case.

Southern Water apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank customers for their patience.

Once the water supply is restored households may notice some discolouration – this will settle down after a few hours.
