Free water can be collected at these two locations:
Netherton Activity Centre L30 3TL
Sainsburys, Liverpool Road, Crosby L23 2SA- open now
Thousands of homes in Sefton are still without water for 24hours now. The areas suffering are Litherland, Bootle, Aintree, Fazakerley, Netherton, Seaforth, Waterloo, Crosby, Blundellsands and Thornton.
People have no drinking water, washing, cooking, flushing toilets Is all a no-go. United Utilities have put up water stations where people have been able to queue for bottled water whilst the situation is ongoing but they have to wait in the huge queues and are obviously rationed to a few bottles each.
All the local shops locally have completely ran out of bottled water which hasn’t helped the situation either.
United Utilities have set up a bottled water station at Netherton Activity Centre, Glovers Lane, L30 3TL that was there until 21:30pm last night and is open from 8am this morning, Sunday 24th July. United Utilities have have said that they are currently arranging for further bottled water stations to be set up in the area should further support be required throughout the day.
People have contacted Sefton Bubble really upset as they have young children or disabled children and they can’t flush the toilet’s or give them water. The bath water is disgusting as seen in this photo that one lady sent in…
The problem started early yesterday morning when a water mains pipe burst on Church Road in Litherland. The incident is by the Netherton pub, Church Road from the golf course to Kirkstone Road.

The latest updates from United Utilities…
ORIGINAL STORY ON SATURDAY 23rd July
❌ Road Closure ❌
Following a water mains burst, part of Dunnings Bridge Road / Church Road is closed this morning, Saturday 23rd July.
UPDATE AT 2pm
You may notice our team of engineers on and around Church Road. The repairs are complex so it’s taking longer than we'd hope to plan, begin and carry out the repair, but please be assured we are doing everything we can to get your taps flowing and toilets flushing again.
Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst our team tackle the repair.
A statement from United Utilities at 11:49am this morning:
We are sorry if you're experiencing no water or poor pressure this morning. This has been caused by a burst on one of our water mains on Church Road. Our team will be in the area throughout the course of the morning due to the complex nature of the repair that is required.
Just to let you know, our teams are still working hard to fix the problem on our network. In the meantime our fleet of water tankers will be in the area, trying to restore and maintain supplies, however some of you may notice you have no water currently and others may have poor water pressure.
We have received a number of calls from customers in the Liverpool area, letting us know that their tap water is discoloured.
This has happened because of burst on Church Road.
Our pipes have naturally occurring sediments and minerals which can get disturbed from the bottom of the pipes every now and then, normally when we have carried out a repair or have replaced a section of water main.
We know it doesn’t look nice but don’t worry, it’s unlikely to be harmful and will settle down again with time. You can help by letting your cold water tap run at a slight trickle until your water runs clear again.
In the meantime we’ll be keeping an eye on this to make sure your tap water returns to normal again as quickly as possible. Please take a look at our discoloured water page for more information.
We're sorry for any inconvenience this maybe causing.
United Utilities are at the site and further updates will be shared as they are available.
The incident is by the Netherton pub, Church Road from the golf course to Kirkstone Road.
