Burst water main causing loss of water in Wednesfield

Mains water supplies in Wednesfield and Willenhall have today been affected by a burst water main in the Stow Heath Lane area of Wolverhampton.

Whilst the problem doesn’t seem to be affecting all of Wednesfield, we’ve received reports on our Facebook page that all of the Moat House Estate is without water, along with several other areas, including neighbouring Willenhall.

Severn Trent Water are working to fix the problem and have posted the following updates on their website:

UPDATE 9am: http://www.stwater.co.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.3970

UPDATE 10:50am: So far we’ve had reports of no water in WV11, WV12 and WV13 and more recently in WS2 in Walsall.

UPDATE 11am: http://www.stwater.co.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.3971

Twitter user fev123 has just informed us that he’s spoken to Severn Trent Water who advised him that residents in Wednesfield may get a ‘trickle’ of water downstairs whilst repairs take place, even if there is no pressure at all upstairs.

UPDATE 1pm: http://www.stwater.co.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.3972

UPDATE 2pm: http://www.stwater.co.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.3973

UPDATE 3pm: No news on when the water will be back on, but if you think it’s bad in Wednesfield, just look what’s happened in Stow Heath where the water pipe burst.

UPDATE 3:30pm: http://www.stwater.co.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.3974

UPDATE 5pm: http://www.stwater.co.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.3975

UPDATE 26th Oct: http://www.expressandstar.com/news/2010/10/26/wolverhampton-water-cut-off-payouts-refused/

    Still no water at march end road WV11

    It would be nice if there was some attempt to inform residents
    There would have been loudspeaker vans pre privatisation!

    @richserv

    Loudspeaker vans sound like an expensive way of letting people know when the vast majority have access to the internet these days?

    Severn Trent have updates their website with info: http://www.stwater.co.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.3970 and also have a Twitter account which is posting updates: http://twitter.com/#!/stwater

    Plus, you don’t need loudspeaker vans, you’ve got WV11.co.uk ;-)

      I appreciate the wv11 website. It’s shown its usefulness today. However I think you overestimated the numbers of residents who regularly access the internet although an e mail from severn Trent to its customers would have been helpful
