Water pressure in Chiswick was severely affected by a burst water in Brentford on 8th September with some premises left without a water supply altogether.

The pipe burst in the Commerce Road area early Wednesday and flooded Brentford High Street.

Water supplies to W & TW areas were disrupted for several hours while Thames Water fixed the problem.

The supply in W3, W4 & W12 was back on a little after midday whilst premises in TW1, TW7 and TW8 had to wait until later in the afternoon.

Thames Water apologised for the inconvenience.

The initial reaction from passers by was that it was a sewage pipe due to the smell and contents but Thames Water say it is a fresh water pipe.
