Despite hopes that the water supply would resume this evening, Welsh Water say that repair work has been hampered by significant engineering difficulties.

Water supplies are now expected to be restored from later tomorrow morning, and free bottled water is currently being distributed from Crymych Water pumping station and Crymych Rugby Club.

The following areas are currently still affected:

  • Crymych
  • Boncath
  • St Dogmaels
  • Tegryn
  • Moelgrove
  • Nevern

We are very sorry to those customers affected by the disruption. Our teams have been working tirelessly through the day to repair the damaged main, and will continue working through the night to get water supplies back to normal as soon as possible.
