Homes re-connected to water supply in Lincolnshire Wolds

Residents in the Lincolnshire Wolds who have spent several days without water after a burst pipe have finally been re-connected.

Anglian Water says all customers should be back with running water after engineering work overnight. The company has asked customers to get in contact if they have any problems and that bottled water and showering facilities are still available.

All customers should now be back on water thanks to the continued work overnight which has fully pressurised the system.

If you still don’t have water, please contact us immediately on 0800 145 145. You may have an air lock in your pipework as a result of the outage. We have WaterSafe approved plumbers standing by locally and will send them to investigate free of charge.

As a result of the air locks we have been removing from the system, it’s possible your water could appear cloudy or white at any time over the next few days. This is just millions of tiny air bubbles trapped in the water and if you leave it to stand in a glass or jug it should quickly clear. For more information on cloudy or white water please visit

Our tankers remain on standby both at Tetford School and near Flint Hill Water Tower but are no longer being used to feed the system. We will remain on standby until the permanent repair near Asterby is complete.

For anyone who is still without water due to an individual issue, bottled water stations remain open today and showering facilities are also available at Meridian Leisure Centre in Louth.

Our employees will be hand delivering apology letters later today, detailing the compensation we’re offering and including instructions on how to submit a business claim.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding over this prolonged period.
