Tar­bert water fault forces school clo­sure

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Tar­bert Academy was forced to close its doors on Wed­nes­day Septem­ber 23 due to the water be­ing cut off.

Scot­tish Water put the prob­lem down to a fault at the Tar­bert water treat­ment works. The fault caused a loss of nor­mal sup­ply, low water pres­sure and dis­coloured water to prop­er­ties in the area.

A Scot­tish Water spokesper­son said: ‘We at­tended as quickly as pos­si­ble to re­solve the is­sue and have been tanker­ing water in to the lo­cal net­work to re­store nor­mal sup­plies to af­fected prop­er­ties. We apol­o­gise for any in­con­ve­nience to af­fected cus­tomers and thank them for their pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing.

‘When water is re­stored will de­pend on where the af­fected prop­er­ties are on our net­work so some might have water re­stored be­fore oth­ers. When the water is re­stored, cus­tomers might ex­pe­ri­ence some dis­coloured water. If so, they should run the cold water tap in their kitchen gen­tly un­til the water runs clear.’
