Scottish Water is investigating a burst on a water main which is causing interruption to supply to some customers in the south of Wick, in Caithness
A team is on site to locate the burst to the 14” trunk main which is affecting water supplies to around 850 customers.
Customers may be facing no water or low water pressure in the KW1, KW3, KW5, and KW6 areas of Caithness, including Spittal, Knockally and Occumster.
Tankers are on their way to backfeed supplies into the network to try and bring as many customers as possible back into supply.
A Scottish Water spokesperson said:
“Our teams are working as quickly a possible to locate the burst and get our customers back into supply at the earliest opportunity.
“We apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused while we carry out this vital repair.”
