Water Off in Rye

Advance warning supply disruption in Rye and surrounding areas
19/10/2017
We’re currently working hard to fix a burst on a 14.5” pipe, which was discovered in a rural area near Brede in the early hours of this morning.

Unfortunately, in order to safely repair it as quickly as possible, we’ll need to interrupt water supplies to around 2,500 residents in the TN31 to TN36 postcode areas from 11AM today. We are working hard to fix the problem as soon as possible.

We are already working closely with the vulnerable customers who will be affected by this and we will be establishing water distribution points for other residents if it becomes necessary.

We are also sending tankers to top up the reservoir supplied by the burst pipe.

We apologies for any inconvenience and thank everyone affected for their understanding and patience whilst we carry out these emergency repairs.
