Severn Trent say water issues in Scarrington, near Bingham, should be fixed soon
Severn Trent say supplies should be returning soon to areas that have been without water since 6am today.
Many households in the NG13 and NG23 postcode areas reported supply problems to the utility company. They were caused by a burst pipe in Scarrington.
Severn Trent's senior corporate communications officer, David Lavender, said: "We’d like to apologise to customers in Scarrington who’ve had their water supply interrupted this morning, following a burst pipe on Hawksworth Road.
"We’ve been working hard to move water around our network, as well as using tankers to inject more water back into our pipes, so customers should see their supply returning soon.
"When everyone is back on and water pressure in the area has returned to normal, we’ll start work to repair the burst pipe.
"To do this, we’ll need to keep Hawksworth Road temporarily closed, to keep everyone safe. We understand it’s inconvenient, so we’d like to say thank you in advance for everyone’s patience.”
He said Severn Trent had received about 150 calls from customers about their supply, which affected places including East Bridgford, Bingham, Aslockton, Whatton, Orston, Bottesford, Staunton, Long Bennington, and some homes north and west of Newark.
