A letter to nearby residents read: '˜We aim to reduce the number of disruptions to customer supplies during this time, however, regrettably as a customer whose property is adjacent (or nearby) to the water main which is being replaced it is likely that your water supply may be interrupted for a short time, in this event we will notify you 48 hours in advance.'
