Hi there. Just found our mains water is off. I've phoned Thames water and been told that it's a problem in SE and SW postcodes so I just wanted to find out how widespread the problem is. Anyone with working mains water?

They say a team is working on it but no estimated repair time!

I have just come on here to post the same thing. My water pressure is just a dribble. I'm in Cole Street, SE1.

Same here in Bermondsey Street. But no relevant news on Thames Water's website.

I suppose -4C overnight will have something to do with it !

From Thame water's web site:

No water SE1, SE5, SE11, SE17, SE27 and SW8, SW9

09.00am 28th November 2010

We apologise to customers in the SE and SW postcodes who are currently experiencing no water or low pressure.

This is due to a valve restricting the flow to both areas due to the cold weather.

Currently a team of engineers are onsite and will restore supplies as soon as possible.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

Thank you for calling thames water.

Water just managing to crawl out of the tap in St Georges Road. Slightly better now than at 0630 this morning. its a relief to find out that it is a wider problem and that it is not just my system - I was dreading a whopping bill!
