RESIDENTS in Hampton and the surrounding areas are without water due to a burst water main on Pershore Road.

A number of homes are without water while many others have water but at a very low pressure due to the fault in the WR11 area of Evesham.

A Seven Trent spokesperson said teams were on the way to site and will ‘work around the clock to get this issue fixed and everything back to normal as quickly as possible’.

“We are doing everything we can to get them back on as soon as we can,” a spokesperson said.

“We know how difficult it is to have no water, especially at this time of day, and we’re really sorry for the inconvenience this may be causing,

“When your water supply is restored it may be discoloured or aerated.

“Although unappealing, we have no reason to believe there is any risk to your health, however we understand that whilst the supply is discoloured you may choose not to drink the water.

“To assist us as well as yourself in resolving this problem we would advise that you run the first mains fed cold water tap in your house, normally at the kitchen sink, at a gentle rate for up to 20 minutes.

“If the supply is not clear then turn off the tap for 20 minutes and then repeat the process, you may need to do this several times before the supply is clear,” the statement added.
