Burst Water Main in Sandness Shetland ZE2

Final update 

Posted: Thursday 3rd June 2021 - 06:30hrs

Water supplies in Sandness Shetland ZE2 which were affected by a burst water pipe are now returning to normal. We thank you for your patience and understanding during the incident.

We have carried out a full repair of the fault and are now returning to normal service. 

Water supply is being restored but you may experience low / intermittent pressure issues, which could be due to an airlock in the pipes. Our "Unplanned Interruption to Your Water Supply" factsheet will help you to resolve this issue.

You might also experience discoloured water. This is normal after such an incident. Our factsheet on discoloured water provides information on how to resolve this type of issue.
