Summary

The lockdown restrictions in place over the last couple of months has meant several business premises have been forced to close which means water within the building plumbing systems will have been left stagnant.

Main News Story

This can cause the water quality to deteriorate within the plumbing system in a number of ways:

  • Warming of water
  • Growth of micro-organisms (e.g. bacteria, legionella)
  • Increased leaching of metals found in plumbing (could cause discolouration)
  • Taste and odour from prolonged contact with some plumbing materials

Wessex Water would like to bring to your attention the steps that should be taken to remove any stagnant water and renew your water supply before your workforce return to work and use the water, please see attached document for more information - Wessex Water - Important information regarding your water supply after lockdown.docx
