Update: 9.30am, 17 November

Following yesterday’s burst watermain on the Mancunion Way most buildings now have full water tanks/pressure at tanks.

Unfortunately, Arthur Lewis Building and Humanities Bridgeford Street have issues with air locks supplying the toilets. Estates and Facilities are working to fix this situation and will put signage up to direct people to other buildings.

Further updates will be provided as soon as possible.

Update: 5pm

United Utilities have isolated and fixed the burst water main.

Following reports of a burst mains water pipe near Mancunian Way, we have received reports that several of our campus locations have been left with no water.

The incident is currently being dealt with by United Utilities who are trying to remedy the situation as soon as possible. We will update colleagues as soon as we have more information.

In the meantime, we ask that staff and students please ensure taps are in the closed position to avoid any risk of flooding when the water pressure returns.

As toilet facilities are also affected, we will update as soon as possible on facilities available elsewhere on campus.
