Planned Interruption to Water Supply in Oban

08 March 2018

Some customers in the south of Oban are being advised of a possible short-term disruption to their water supply on Wednesday 14 March 2018.

It's possible that  supply could be affected some time between 10am and 4pm but should last no longer than 1-2 hours. Anyone who'll be affected will have received notification through the post.

This essential work to improve the resilience of existing infrastructure in the area will help reduce the risk of interruption to supply. 

Ruaridh MacGregor, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs regional manager, said: 

“Customers who are going to be affected by this interruption will have received a postcard notifying them about this planned interruption.  

“Please prepare for this in advance by storing enough water in containers for drinking, washing, and flushing the toilet. When your supply comes back on it may be cloudy, discoloured or contain sediment. If this happens please let the cold tap in the kitchen run slowly until the water runs clear.

"If you haven't received notification from us, your property will not be affected.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of this work and thank customers in advance for their patience and understanding."
