We are currently repairing a damaged fire hydrant in Tudsbery Avenue which is causing the interruption to the water supply for customers in Edinburgh EH16 area. This is related to the misuse of hydrants in this area tonight and was found and reported by the Fire and Rescue service when out turning these off. We haven't been given an estimated time for this repair but will work as quickly and safely as we can.
The water supply will gradually return to normal for customers once the repair has been completed. We expect it will take up to an hour for all customers to have normal water supply restored.
While we carry out the repair please be aware that you may experience no water supply, low / intermittent pressure or discoloured water.
