SCOTTISH WATER APPEALS FOR HELP TRACING LEAKS AND BURSTS IN THE NORTH-EAST

Scottish Water teams are working hard to trace and repair leaks across water networks in the north-east, following the impacts of last week’s extreme low temperatures and the thaw now underway.

Local response teams are continuing to work across the region to maintain normal service for customers wherever possible. They are appealing for customers and property owners to help in locating leaks, whether on the public water network or in private plumbing.

They are particularly asking customers in these areas to check any empty properties, business premises, holiday homes, basements, out houses, field troughs or garden taps to identify where there may be any burst pipes.

Leaks and bursts within vacant premises could result in flooding and damage to properties and Scottish Water is encouraging all customers to check, where possible in line with current Covid-19 travel guidelines.

Where customers are aware of leaks or bursts on the public water network, they are asked to contact Scottish Water with as much detail of the location as possible. Issues can be reported via the online reporting portal on Scottish Water’s website at www.scottishwater.co.uk/report.
