The Rhondda Fach has been without water overnight. Dwr Cymru say that the problem is due to burst pipes leading to the Maerdy treatment works. There was no warning, so people were unable to prepare. The shops have sold out of bottled water, but water deliveries are being made and priority is being given to older and vulnerable people. Those needing bolttled water or information as to what is happening to their water should ring 0800 052 0130.
