Message for all staff and students: burst water pipe

This morning a burst water pipe was discovered on Bristol Road South, outside the Goose pub. This has caused a loss of supply to some of the residents and businesses in the following postcode areas: B13, B14, B15, B29 & B30. The Severn Trent team has now been on site for several hours and supplies are gradually being re-routed, but not at normal full pressure. Supply to many of the buildings on campus has been restored, but it may take some time for storage tanks to fill up before full pressure is re-established.

It is to be expected that some of the water that will initially come through may be discoloured. Whilst this water is drinkable you may wish to run the supply until you have clear water.

If you have any on-going problems with water or water pressure, please call the Estates Helpdesk on 46406.
