Many messages about this today. Residents in Blantyre will be experiencing discoloured water today following a burst water main on Stonefield Road.
The burst, situated in the carriageway outside Scotmid has stirred up natural sediment given the pipe has been disturbed. Being a primary supply line, affects many housing estates today, Tuesday 18th October 2022.
Scottish Water are aware and have despatched a work crew to fix. Meantime, their advice is:
- Don’t run the hot water tap.
- Let the cold water taps run on half pressure for a time.
- Check the water in a white cup every so often until clear again.
This is a temporary issue and they’re looking to fix things as soon as possible.
