“We’re really sorry that your water may be off in Liverpool Road and the surrounding areas of Buckley. We’re working hard to fix a burst pipe and we’ll get your water back on by later this morning.
When the water supply is restored some customers may notice some discolouration of their tap water, this is normal in this situation and the water should clear when run from a cold tap.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused.”
