Properties in Margate without water due to burst main

Homes are without water

Properties in Margate are without water this morning due to a burst main.

Southern Water is aware of the issue and has a repair team due on site.

A statement from the firm says: “We are aware of a burst in Invicta Road, Margate. Our team is on the way to investigate and make the necessary repairs.

“Sometimes repairs take longer than we’d like, as we need to complete numerous checks and tests. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we thank you for your patience.”

Last month homes were without water twice, once due to a fault on the main in Millmead Road and the other because of a faulty pump that affected homes across the isle.

UPDATE: (9.45am) Some residents reporting water is restored
