Problems with utilities in Knutsford

By on October 7, 2018

Issues with water pressure and power outages in Knutsford in the last 24 hours have caused problems across the town.

The water pressure issues were reported to United Utilities at 8am yesterday. The areas affected are WA16/SK11.

A United Utilities spokesman said: “You may have noticed that the water is coming out of your tap slower than usual or may have gone off altogether. We have one of our inspectors looking into this at the moment and as soon as we know the cause of the problem we will let you know. We’re sorry about this and will get your taps flowing normally as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.”

In addition, Scottish Power have been advised of a power outage in Knutsford which is affecting traffic due to traffic lights potentially failing. It is planned to be resolved by 9:30am.

Police have asked people to drive safely through the area.
