13 January 2021Urgent water supply repairs in Byrness

Northumbria Water are needing to undertake some urgent work in Byrness.

This will mean cutting off the water supply for approximately three weeks however to avoid the need for bottled water to be supplied a tanker will be located in the Byrness car park together with a generator to ensure there will be no impact on the residents of Byrness whilst this work is being carried out.

The work will start either later this week or early next with the installation of the tanker and generator before attaching to the main pipe. The generator will be silent and ensure residents shouldn’t notice a change in water pressure.

For your information Northumbria Water are considering whether a security guard is needed for the site (apparently in some locations generators have been known to disappear!) who if is located there is likely to be sitting in a vehicle nearby.


Updates will be provided as and when received but if you have any queries or experience any problems please contact the Parish Clerk at rochesterwithbyrnesspc@gmail.com
