Burst water main disrupts supply in Buxton

THE WATER supply to around 1,300 properties in the Buxton area has been affected by a burst water main.

Severn Trent Water said a mixture of homes and business properties in the SK17 area of the town were either without water, or experiencing poor pressure, due to the burst main this afternoon (Wednesday).

The water authority has dispatched an engineering crew to carry out repairs.

“At the moment we are looking at re-zoning supplies (diverting the water around the leak) so that we can get the majority of these people back on as quickly as possible,” a spokesperson said.
