Water supplies restored in Newton Mearns

Final update 

Posted: Monday 22nd June 2020 - 12:00hrs

Water supplies have now been restored for customers in Newton Mearns following an interruption to supply this morning due to a running fire hydrant.

Due to the volume of water being drawn from the network from this hydrant, this led to an increased demand on the network which left customers without supply during peak times this morning.

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.

We would like to thank all affected customers for their patience and co-operation throughout.
