Thames Water say they have made improvements overnight and are now pumping water into the area following yesterday’s supply problems. Water should start to return to affected homes throughout the morning.
A spokesman said:” We know how annoying and disruptive it is to have no water or low pressure, and we’re very sorry to anyone still affected by these issues. We’re still working hard to improve the situation.
In the meantime, we’ve opened a site where you can collect bottled water – it’s at 8 Stadium Way, Reading, RG30 6BX.
Our team will be following the most up to date advice about social distancing, so we’d kindly ask you not to come to this station on foot. We’ll load water into your vehicle so please don’t get out of your car or try to help – we’ve got it covered.
The water is for essential use, like drinking, cooking and hand washing. Please be considerate and don’t take more than you need. If you have a neighbour who’s unable to get to a water station, please let us know and we’ll do our best to make sure our limited supplies are fairly handed out.
We know how worrying and inconvenient it is not to have water, especially at this difficult time. We’ve answered the most common customer questions about coronavirus, including how we can provide extra help to those who need it most.
We’ll continue to update you here once we have further news.
