Emergency water supplies

Here you can find details of companies that can offer you water supplies in an emergency.

If your private water supply fails, you may be able to get an emergency supply from a contractor listed below. This is not a full list of suppliers and you may be able to find others. 

Please note: The Council does not recommend contractors and this is a general list of some that are available.

The provision of other water supplies is outside the Council's control.

  • We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of independent contractors.
  • Please check that the costs and service they give will meet your needs.

Your household or business insurance policy may cover the costs, but you must check this with them.
