Water Shortage

West Sussex is currently experiencing water shortages around the county





Following several days of no water supply in parts of West Sussex we understand supply has now been restored in most areas.


The areas worst affected were Warninglid, Cuckfield and Bolney.


Residents in those areas should now have access to water but in some cases this might be ‘white water’. White water is simply cloudy water as a result of air in the system. It should return to normal in the next day or so.


However West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service are visiting villages who have been cut off from water supplies to provide reassurance and check all supplies have been restored.


The fire and rescue service will be in the worst affected areas; Bolney, Cuckfield and Warninglid this evening.


Over the past 24 hours the county council has been going door to door handing our water supplies, checking what support people need and checking supply problems.


It has also been delivering water to central pick-up points and directly supplying care homes and other services which rely on water. The county council’s meals on wheels service has also been delivering water alongside its normal service.


The county council is urging anyone living in the affected areas to keep an eye on neighbours, particularly those who are vulnerable or need support.


If you are still without water and need support please contact 01243 642104 with your address.
