Damage caused by a third party road contractor to one of our water mains is affecting drinking water supplies to customers in Abercarn, Cross Keys, Ynysddu and surrounding areas.
Our engineers are working throughout the night to fix the problem. This is a large, very high pressure water main and a significant amount of water was lost through the damage. Both the safety of our people and the needs of our customers remains our key priority.
We anticipate that water supplies will begin to return to normal mid-morning tomorrow.
