Severn Trent Water have confirmed that water supply is gradually being restored to premises affected this evening.  This process needs to be done gradually in order to minimise the risk of any possible further rupture of pipes/mains.  The 12,000 premises should be normalised within the next 2 – 3 hours.

Severn Trent Water work force is battling to resolve the recurrence of the burst water main in Dads Lane, Selly Park.   The water main burst in two places yesterday in Dads Lane and Dog Pool Lane leaving a large number of properties within the Kings Heath and Moseley area with no water supply.  The same properties have been affected for this incident.  First reports came through from residents at approximately 18:30 this evening.  We will keep you informed of any progress.
