Hundreds of people have been left without water after a power outage at a water treatment plant.
Battle residents are out of water for the second night in a row as South East Water apologizes to customers.
A power outage at a water treatment plant yesterday led to the closure of the site, preventing water production.
Technicians are on site to fix the problem and anticipate the faucets will be flowing tomorrow morning.
South East Water said: “Although we have technicians on call 24/7, the snow and ice meant we had to use one of our 4×4 vehicles to pick up the technician and take him to site, by which time our water supplies had run out of.” open to customers.”
It said power had been restored, but bringing water production back to expected levels was a “long and complex process”.
The water company said: “As the site has completely drained, we need to take additional measures to get it up and running again. Please rest assured that we are treating this issue with the highest priority.”
The water company, which serves customers throughout the southeast, said it was unable to provide an emergency water supply due to road conditions.
