Has anyone else in SE23 been without water for most of today? I see that there is notice of the outage on the Thames Water site but it gives no indication of when we can expect running water again.

Appreciate if anyone else has further info. or has been able to get through to Thames Water.

Yes. I now have a small amount of water downstairs but none upstairs.

Looks like this has been updated from an incident to Perry Vale to "We found a burst pipe".

I walked past the burst pipe yesterday evening and it looked like a bit of a work in progress still, but water is working fine for me today thankfully. Fingers crossed there aren't any outages again.

The big leak is along mayow rd - been going a good week or 2.
The stream is blocking the drains one by one on the west side, with all the clay and sand it's kicked up and has now blocked the drain on perry vale at the PV crossing at the bottom.
This has created a significant pond in PV and blocked the pavement on both sides.

historical note.
I've always been curious to where the old ex-stream (from what is now the german bridge, past the rose cottages and down woolstone rd), crossed perry vale, because it flowed on the north side of the road, not the south.

Now we know. Like any sensible stream, it crossed at the crossing.
This is very exciting as the resultant muddy track at exactly this point ~200 years ago most likely gave perry vale/slough it's name, in my opinion.
