    Water Situation in the Rhondda Fach

    I have discussed the situation tonight with a representative of Welsh Water They tell me that this is the first time in 12 years that they have experienced this kind of problem with the supply to the Maerdy treatment centre. I know that Welsh Water is bringing water in by tankers and ensuring that there are bowsers in Maerdy and Ferndale. They say they are also supplying bottled water to people on the special needs register but I have urged them to make sure that older and vulnerable people who are not on the special needs register know that they need to phone their freephone number 0800 052 0130 if they need bottled water. I have also asked Welsh Water to try to make sure this information is repeated regularly on broadcast news bulletins.

    For more detail on the reasons behind the problems, there is a press release from Welsh Water here.
