Locals encouraged to report leaks as big thaw continues

As the Beast from the East retreats, the milder temperatures may bring some problems of their own for pipework and plumbing.

Essex & Suffolk Water is encouraging customers to keep an eye out for bursts pipes and leaks across the region caused by the recent change in extreme temperatures.

While some leaks are easy to see – think water gushing from pavements and manholes and shooting from the ground – others are much more difficult to spot and people might not even realise there is a leak until they are out of water or begin to lose pressure when they turn on the tap.

Our leakage teams are working around the clock fixing bursts and our networks are currently operating as expected after the unprecedented temperatures and conditions the region faced last week.
