The latest from Severn Trent is that all homes in Gloucestershire have now been re-connected with a non-drinkable mains supply.
Martin Kane, Severn Trent’s director of customer services:
We must continue to remind customers that any restored supplies must not be used for drinking, even after boiling. But it’s perfectly safe to use for showering, bathing, flushing toilets and washing clothes.
…Meanwhile, we are sampling tap water intensively over the weekend and beyond to ensure we can get customers back onto a drinkable supply as soon as possible next week.
