Planned work to a drinking water main on Tuesday (March 2)  which could have interrupted supply to three villages in the Borders has now been postponed.

Residents and businesses in the areas had been sent letters telling them about the essential maintenance tomorrow (TUESDAY MARCH 2) between 8am and 8pm which could interrupt their water supply. The villages served by the drinking water main were Reston, Ayton and Burmouth and properties in the nearby surrounding areas.

Due to operational reasons the planned work has been delayed and will take place in the next seven to ten days. Customers in the area will be notified in advance of when the interruption will now take place. It is needed for essential maintenance work to be carried out at Reston Railway Station.

A Scottish Water spokeswoman said: “We apologise for the late notice of this change of plan – customers in these areas will now no longer have an interruption to their water supplies due to this work on March 2 as planned. We will let customers know when this has been rescheduled for ahead of it taking place.”
