Affinity Water notification of works – Renewing water mains in your area
What are we doing?
As part of an investment programme to replace ageing pipework that has reached the end of its useful life, we need to carry out some essential works in your area to ensure we continue to supply high quality drinking water both now and in the future whilst supporting our customers who need us the most. We will achieve this through proactively maintaining our network and equipment whilst ensuring the safety, health and wellbeing of our people and our communities to ensure a reliable supply of water to your community for many years to come.
We will be installing new water mains in your area over the coming weeks and this work will be carried out by our contractors Morrison Utility Services. To carry out this work, we may need to work directly outside your property. We understand that road works can be inconvenient, and we would like to apologise for any disruption this may cause. Please be assured that this work is absolutely essential and we will do our best to keep disruption to a minimum.

How this work may affect you?
Water Supply: Your water supply may be interrupted at times for up to three hours while this essential work is carried out. Before we do this, we will deliver a red warning card through your letter box stating the earliest start time of the interruption and the latest finish time when your water will be restored. If the interruption to the main supply is likely to be longer than three hours, we will provide a temporary supply to your property while the old pipe is replaced. You may notice a drop in pressure while on the temporary connection. There will be a second short interruption to the water supply as your service is transferred onto the new main. This should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
Is my water safe to drink while on the temporary supply?
Your water is safe to drink with no need to boil it while you are connected to the temporary service. You will receive a cautionary boil notice once you are connected to the new water main while the samples are being tested.
Access and Parking: Areas of the road and footpath will be coned off before we dig a trench. Please do not park vehicles in these coned-off areas. Furthermore, we may have to ask you to move your car in order to access the main, but will give you as much notice as we can.
Reinstatement: We will ensure all roads and verges are put back to their previous condition. The area will be checked before our teams leave. If you have any issues with our work during or after it has taken place, please let us know. Speak to our supervisor on site and they will do all they can to assist you.
