Gloucestershire Floods: Lingering Confusion

Kieron's tap water has run out and the water at his workplace will run out in the next few days, according to Kieron. He'll come and stay with me until he can go back. That may well take over a week.

On the other hand, Severn Trent Water say that they only shut off supply to Kieron's workplace temporarily and will turn it on again, according to BBC Gloucestershire.

Severn Trent Water have finally gained access to the Mythe Water Works and have started pumping out water. They'll be able to assess the damage when the flood water is gone. After that it will take 1-2 weeks for Mythe to start serving customers again.

It seems to me that the situation is still rather confused with contradictory statements flying around. I'd love to have Kieron here but obviously it's better if people have water. I'm wondering if Severn Trent shut off the water supply to the industrial area where Kieron works so that there will be enough for the people who live in the villages nearby. That would explain the difference between what Kieron is saying and what the BBC are saying.
