Update 7am

Our teams have worked through the night to repair our water booster station in Broadstairs, Kent, following disruption to water supplies in the area.

Although the repair has helped restore supplies, we’re continuing to closely monitor this situation.

The network is complex and it will take time to get water flowing throughout and for water to fully return this morning.

As water starts to return, customers may have low pressure, bubbles or discolouration - all of which are normal and temporary. More information about what to can expect is available here.

We have started to deliver bottled water to people on our Priority Services Register today.

Anyone who needs access to bottled water as a priority, can sign up to our Priority Services Register for emergency deliveries by calling 0330 303 0368.

We are sorry for the distress and inconvenience caused to our customers by this incident.
