In my last topic , you may have noticed this . It's Blithfield reservoir , 2 huge bodies of water , separated by a road . It's the property of Severn Trent Water , which supplies most of Staffordshire, Shropshire and parts of the West Midlands . Since Thursday , thousands of householders have had water supply problems, due , as I predicted, to lockdown , plus warmer weather . Water has been cloudy , and the supply stops around 18.00 . One story featured a mother with a six day old baby , born by C - section . The baby obviously needs good, clean water and so does the mother's operation wound . I live 6 miles from her , yet I'm unaffected . It seems an intolerable situation , doesn't it ? Have you had any problems with your supply ?

Not yet, Steve - although South East Water is muttering about customers being less than careful with water, which is usually a precursor to a hosepipe ban. And we don't get much more than twice the average desert rainfall round here at the best of times! Reply

We are also Severn Trent and have had lots of problems over the years with low pressure, the last few weeks were the worst ever.
Maybe they should invest some of their massive profits to ensure they save more of the wet stuff that falls from the sky, like when we had all the flooding back in Feb!

Tap water here had a slightly rust-tainted flavour ( not colour ) for reasons unknown during a few weeks of mid May, but all seems back to normal now. Reply

Water pressure has dropped here, and it is only going to get worse. Medway council has recently approved the building of 12,000 homes in one area, and so far there has not been any suggestion as to where they are going to find the extra water. We had to have compulsory water meter installed, but that has done little to lower the water consumption. We are getting hundreds of thousands of new homes in Kent, but very little is being done to improve the infrastructure. If this weather goes on for much longer, we will definitely have a hosepipe ban here. Reply

only once in the highlands while staying at a place in sky, the water was clean but very peaty, smelt foul and was red in colour, even a large amount of bath foam couldnt get rid of the stink but we did see a herd of deer in the field from our window x Reply

Sorry to hear that there are water problems! The poor mother and her new born baby! That is sad news that they are struggling like many others will be! Everything is fine in my area luckily. Reply
