Please help us look after Orkney’s water networks

We have teams working throughout Orkney who are attempting to trace and repair water leaks across the network, both on the mainland network and in some of the northern isles.

Our teams are responding to an increase in water demand which comes after a period of severe weather.

We would be grateful if you can help us by checking any empty properties, holiday homes, out houses, field troughs or garden taps for any burst pipes or indications of clear water. 

If you are aware of any possible water leaks within your property or in your local area, please contact us on:

T: 0800 0778 778

Thank you for your help, which will help us to maintain normal service for our customers across the islands.
