A burst water main near to Augusta Park means that many homes across Andover have woken up to no water this morning (Wednesday 13th November 2019).
Augusta Park residents report that they have no water at all, whilst the burst main has also affected the water pressure in as far-reaching villages as Stoke and St Mary Bourne.
The incident was first reported to Southern Water at 6.49am, as yet it is still not fixed.
Thank you to Tony Whiteley for the video and commentary.
St Paul’s in Smannell Road has been open from 8:15 this morning for tea/coffee or to use toilets and fill up bottles of water if needed for all those affected by the burst water main. Toys and books available for children too if required!
