Dwr Cymru Welsh Water

Wednesday, 19th February – 20:00

We have continued to deal with the impact of severe weather and flooding over the last few days, particularly in the Monmouth area.

We have now been able to gain access to our water treatment works at Mayhill, which had been evacuated as a result of flooding from the severe rainfall we saw over the weekend and yesterday. As a result, our staff have begun the process of assessing the damage, and developing a plan to try to get the works back up and running, but we anticipate this will take some time to do, given the impact of the flooding and the work needed to bring the operation back into normal service.

In the meantime, we are continuing our extensive tanker operation throughout the town to maintain supplies to customers. This has involved a fleet of more than 40 tankers, which have been pumping water into the system and supplies have been kept going for the vast majority of our customers. We are making every effort to maintain this in the coming hours and days, while we get the works up and running.

Some customers in Monmouth have been asking our colleagues in the area if they need to boil their tap water: our answer is no. We’re providing bottled water as a precaution in case supply is interrupted and for a small number of customers without water.

We have also set up three bottled water stations for those who have seen their supply interrupted. These will be open from 8am til 8pm and can be found at:
• Monmouthshire Comprehensive School – Dixon Road – NP25 3YT
• Redbrook Road (opposite Lidl’s car park entrance) - NP25 3LY
• Trellech Primary School - NP25 4AX

We ask those who still have water not to visit these sites, as we need to prioritise customers with an intermittent supplies.

We have delivered bottled water to all properties as a precautionary measure and will also continue to deliver bottled water proactively to our vulnerable customers on the Priority Services Register, such as the elderly, disabled, or those with young children.

We want to thank our customers for bearing with us while we carry out this work to keep things going.

We will post regular updates here and social media.
