Drivers are facing disruption after a water main burst in Westhill this morning.
The pipe is affecting the Old Skene Road on the outskirts of the city.
A Scottish Water engineer has been dispatched to repair the works and the network is now recovering with those without water this morning now coming back into supply.
A spokesman said: “A burst water main occurred early this morning on Old Skene Road in Westhill on a main which serves businesses on the south side of town; and rural areas to the south and west.
“Our engineers were on site quickly and have isolated the damaged section of main, allowing water to be re-routed through unaffected parts of our network. The network is now recovering and the great majority of customers who have been without water this morning are coming back into supply.
“A team is on site to excavate the damaged water main and carry out a repair, which will enable supply to be restored to the final few customers in the immediate vicinity of the burst this afternoon.
“We would like to apologise to customers and businesses for the inconvenience caused by the disruption to their water supply this morning and thank them for their patience while our team on site works to complete repairs.”
Customers who experience cloudy or discoloured water after normal supply is restored should run their cold kitchen tap at half pressure until the water runs clear.
