Problems with the lack of water in the past week, caused by major leakages from old piping systems, suggest change is needed. Some of the piping systems date back a century and were not insulated to handle extreme temperatures. No sooner had we got over Christmas Day and St Stephen’s Day than we had water cut-offs.
Little information was available from the web site, about on and off times in the county. Therefore it was not recommended to have on machinery depending on water like washing machines or dishwashers in the event of them seizing up.
