Scottish Water has apologised to any customers affected.
SCOTTISH Water has issued an apology to customers throughout Cumbernauld after water supplies in the G67 postcode were temporarily cut off.

The firm confirmed only two hours ago that a “burst water main” had cut off supply to some customers in Cumbernauld – although mostly only customers in the G67 postcode were affected by the outage.

At shortly after one o’clock this afternoon (29 January), a spokesperson for Scottish Water confirmed that supplies had been affected due to a burst water main.

“A burst water main has been located in Cumbernauld, #G67,” the spokesperson explained. “Scottish Water are on site,” they added.

One hour ago, the company issued an update on the situation which confirmed that supplies had been “restored” to customers affected. 

“Supplies have now been restored to those customers affected in Cumbernauld, G67,” a Scottish Water spokesperson confirmed.

“As supplies fully restore customers may experience some discolouration to their water, rest assured this is perfectly safe to use. In order to clear this you should run just your cold kitchen tap at half pressure until the water stream runs clear.

“For any further assistance call us on 0345 600 8855 and one of our experienced Customer Service Advisors will deal with your call as quickly as possible. Alternatively you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter,” the spokesperson added. 

In a follow-up statement, the company’s spokesperson reaffirmed the confirmation that supplies had been restored to affected customers, and issued an apology to anybody who was affected by the outage. 

The spokesperson said: “Repairs have been completed in Cumbernauld, #G67. [Scottish Water is] Sorry for the delay.”
