Dalwhinnie water restrictions lifted

Scottish Water has lifted restrictions which were put in place on the water supply serving around 50 properties in Dalwhinnie in the Highlands.

Sample results have confirmed that the water is now safe for customers to use for drinking and cooking as normal.

Restrictions were implemented on Monday and initial investigations suggest the issue was linked to recent severe weather which limited the intake of water to Dalwhinnie’s water treatment works at a time of high demand.

This resulted in sediment being drawn into the supply, which activated safety systems.

A spokesperson for Scottish Water said: “We would like to apologise to customers in Dalwhinnie who experienced disruption to their water supply due to the precautionary measures we put in place.

“Our local operational team has worked hard to restore a safe supply to customers as quickly as possible, in consultation with NHS Highland.

“Test results have now confirmed the water can be used for drinking and cooking as normal.

“We would like to thank the local community for its understanding while we have been working to resolve this issue.”
