Illegal To Cut Off Water Supply

Some Time Ago I Read That It Is Illegal For The Water Co. To Disconnect Water Supply To A Household.
As Water Is Deemed As Neccesaty Of Life.

Is It True? Anyone Have Reference To The Relevant Legislation?

It's also illegal not to pay the bill so they cancel each other out.

You're not planning to sue Severn Trent Water becuase they're disconnected your water supply because of the possability it could be contaminated with flood water are you?

The water company comes out, Disconnects the water.

If you were on about being cut off because you are in the affected flood region then they have to cut off the water supply if there is any risk of contamination to the general public.

Well if thats the case (Because of the floods) its for your own good, Unless you want nasty diseases etc.

They have no choice but to cut off the water.

nasty? understatement....

Everytime I go on a waste/water treatment site i have to have an induction, here's just info on one of the diseises:

How Annoying Is Typing Like This?

I Assume It Would Be Illegal For Them To Disconnect Your Water Supply If You Are Still Living In The Accommodation.
