Work to repair two burst water mains in the Rotherfield and Crowborough areas which affected drinking water supplies to 4,400 customers yesterday (12 August) has been completed.

South East Water’s repair teams worked throughout the day to repair the pipes, which burst in the early hours of yesterday morning, in Five Ashes Road near Rotherfield and Luxford Road in Crowborough.

The company restored supplies to the majority of its customers overnight but some areas around Crowborough and Jarvis Brook remain without water this morning.

Steve Andrews, South East Water’s Head of Central Operations, said: “We are sorry to those customers who are still without water

“We are working to remove airlocks in our extensive and complex pipeline network in the area and investigating a report of a further burst water main in the area.

“We are also in the process of setting up new bottled water stations and will provide an update on locations once they are open.”
