United Utilities have said that everyone should have running water again by 10pm tonight.
Kris from United Utilities said: “We have now replaced the section of water pipe that had caused the burst and the disruption to customers. We can now begin to refill the pipe and network with water but need to do that carefully due to the size and to avoid any further issues occurring such as further leaks or discoloured water.”
“We expect that everyone will come back on supply through the evening and up to about 10pm.”
”We have now opened another bottled water station at Tesco, Hawthorne Road, Litherland, L21 8NZ and this will remain open until 9pm. We've temporarily closed the bottled water station at Netherton Activity Centre L30 3TL whilst we wait for more bottled water to be delivered, but will re-open that as soon as possible and confirm that when that is back up and running.”
”Thank you all for your patience and understanding whilst we complete the work.”
