Households in and around Wotton-under-Edge who've been experiencing low water pressure can now get bottled water from an unmanned station.
Severn Trent has opened the station because of the "incredibly high" demand for treated water over the last two nights.
The station is located at:
- Kingswood Village Hall Wickwar Rd, Kingswood, Wotton-under-Edge GL12 8RF
The water company is also asking customers to "ditch their sprinklers and pressure washers" to help get demand under control.
