South East Water is working to repair a serious burst on a large water main in South Chailey which has caused supplies to be affected in Barcombe, Ditchling, Plumpton, Keymer, Hassocks and Chailey.
The burst occurred on one of our 15 inch diameter water mains late last night. Our specialist technicians have now managed to change the flow of water around our network of underground pipes and supplies should be returning to customers in Ditchling, Plumpton, Keymer, Hassocks and Chailey."
“Customers in the Barcombe area may still be without water, although some supplies have returned, and our staff and contractors are on site carrying out repairs to the damaged main in order to restore supplies. Due to the complexity of the burst main, we expect the repair to take around four hours to complete.”
“We would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience this emergency has caused, but hope our customers understand that we are taking all necessary steps to restore supplies as soon as possible.”
