Burst pipe help plea

LANDOWNERS and farmers in the region are being asked to help tackle burst pipes locally.

Scottish Water has highlighted that the change in temperature, from cold to warm, over the past few days has led to a large number of burst pipes.

And they are calling on farmers and landowners to join their efforts.

A spokesperson said: “A lot of leakage across the water network is coming from private properties, outhouses, empty buildings, steadings and even animal troughs in rural areas that can be hard to spot.

“Farmers and landowners can play a crucial role by checking their properties, buildings and holdings.

“Finding and fixing bursts on the network is critical to reduce the pressure and return services to normal.”

Anyone finding a leak should log the issue with Scottish Water at www.scottishwater.co.uk/leakage.
