Low Water Pressure - Main Campus UPDATED 16/11/18

Updated 12.30pm 16/11/18: It has been confirmed that the water pressure has been restored to acceptable levels that will enable all buildings on Campus to be fully occupied. The situation will be held under review and monitored over the weekend and early next week to ensure that the water supply is permanently restored. Estates will continue to engage with those Departments that were highlighted as being vulnerable in the event of pressure loss.

Updated 4pm, 15/11/18: We are still experiencing low water pressure on main campus. Our suppliers Severn Trent Water have been to campus and are investigating. The Estates Office team will continue to support departments affected until this situation is resolved, but we ask where possible that people use toilets, showers and kitchens on the ground floors of buildings until the issue is resolved. This does not impact buildings at the Gibbet Hill and Westwood campuses.
