Muthill burst pipe re­paired

Strathearn Herald - - NEWS - Lynn Duke

Muthill res­i­dents were with­out wa­ter for a few hours on Mon­day evening fol­low­ing a burst wa­ter pipe at the edge of the vil­lage.

And the burst pipe caused treach­er­ous con­di­tions on the road as wa­ter from the pipe flowed out on to the road and froze in the icy tem­per­a­tures.

On Tues­day, a spokesman for Scot­tish Wa­ter told the Her­ald: “A team from Scot­tish Wa­ter at­tended the area yes­ter­day af­ter­noon to re­pair a burst main near the bowl­ing green in the vil­lage.

“Th i s re p a i r w a s com­pli­cated and meant the sup­ply for the vil­lage had to be turned off for a short time to en­able the re­pair to be car­ried out.

“Once it was com­pleted and sup­ply re­stored it was dis­cov­ered that air­locks were caus­ing is­sues for some cus­tomers in the vil­lage.

“Scot­tish Wa­ter staff rec­ti­fied the sit­u­a­tion and sup­ply was fully re­stored to all af­fected cus­tomers last night.

“We apol­o­gise and thank cus­tomers for their pa­tience while the work was car­ried out.”
