Seems to be a lot of news on the lack of water in the City but very little mention of rural problems. Personally here in the backwaters outside Coagh in rural Tyrone (near Cookstown), we have been without running water for over a week. The problem seemingly being frozen underground pipes outside the property running through the garden. We have managed to get by – filling containers from our neighbours water supply (they had their own problems with frozen pipes in the loft). We finally got running water again this afternoon … for about 2 hours …..and now the whole village is without water…… Currently surviving on 17p 2L bottles of water from Asda , as the nearest place to obtain water supplies, according to the news and NIW website, is Ballymena!
