Burst water main causing loss of water in Wednesfield
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 10:50am: So far we’ve had reports of no water in WV11, WV12 and WV13 and moreÂ recently in WS2 in Walsall.
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 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.
