Burst main in Old Road, Bromyard leaves homes without water

HOMES are again without water in a Herefordshire this evening (October 23) as engineers try to repair a burst main. 

Welsh Water has confirmed that it’s affecting people in the Bromyard area, with the issue reaching far as Felton, Ullingswick, Little Cowarne, Stoke Lacy, Crick’s Green and Munderfield.

The problem stems from a hole in the town’s Old Road, which first burst yesterday (October 22)


It is understood that it was initially fixed before bursting again this afternoon (October 23).

A text message sent to residents from Welsh Water reads: “Hello, we’re sorry you may have aerated water supply which is white or cloudy in appearance and discolouration to your water supply following repair to a burst water main repair. 

“We’re sorry you may have no water, or low pressure. It should return later this evening.”

It comes after a burst affected the town’s water supply earlier in the week on October 17, with students at Queen Elizabeth High School being sent home for the day.
