Update on Water Issue in Barrow upon Trent Parish

We have acquired a list of affected post codes and Barrow village and Arleston are not on it. We can only assume that this is correct as it came from a tweet from Severn Trent themselves, which means many people might have a large but unnecessary stockpile of bottled water!

To view the list of affected post codes, click the link below:

List of Affected Postcodes as of 7.30pm March 11th

Click here for the Severn Trent warning article

Severn Trent has put out an urgent warning to around 3,700 customers in Derbyshire and Leicestershire to stop using their water supply immediately, due to a ‘higher than normal’ level of chlorine being detected in the water.

The problem stems from an “over chlorinated” reservoir in the Castle Donington area. The company says it is too early to say whether customers will be compensated.

A statement released by Severn Trent said: “As a precaution we’re asking our customers in the DE11, DE73 and LE65 areas of Derbyshire and Leicestershire to not use their water supply while we investigate a problem with higher than normal levels of chlorine at one of service reservoirs in the Derbyshire area. This means that customers affected should not use the water supply at all.

“We’re sorry for the inconvenience this will cause and we’re working hard to isolate the problem and get everything back to normal as quickly as possible.”

“A Do Not Use notice means that customers shouldn’t use their water supply for anything including drinking, preparing food and bathing.”
