Water Leak Luxford Road


Update: South East Water have fixed the burst on Luxford Road. There was also a burst water main in Five Ashes Road near Rotherfield.

After yesterday’s problems, South East Water have said there are still some households in Crowborough & Jarvis Brook who are without water this morning (Thursday 13th). This is because their technicians are finding airlocks in the system causing localised supply problems.

There is now a bottled water station at Crowborough Community Centre (as well as Rotherfield Village Hall and Mayfield Village Centre).
