Anglian Water says it has repaired a burst water main which flooded the junction of Sankt Augustin Way and Dysart Road in Grantham yesterday and affected supplies to 63 properties.

Customers were left without water after the main burst outside Great Northern Court early yesterday morning.

An Anglian Water spokesman said today: “We’re very sorry that the repair to this water main took longer than we originally anticipated. Once we excavated the main, it was clear a longer section of pipe needed to be replaced.

“Yesterday afternoon we worked to install a valve which brought customers back on water. To carry out the full repair to the longer section of pipe and reinstate the road our crew worked into the night, but unfortunately they will need to continue working for the remainder of the week. We’re aiming to get the road back to normal before the weekend.

“Once again, we are really sorry for the time taken to repair this main and for the inconvenience caused by the road works. We’d like to thank customers for their continued patience.”

The company also says that if customers are still having problems with their water they should call 03457 145 145 or go to the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AnglianWater or Twitter at twitter.com/anglianwater

Traffic was moving slowly for much of the day as it moved through several inches of water. One lane of Sankt Augustin Way remains closed in the area of the water main.
