A water plant in Okrney has resumed operating after fuel polluted a loch.
Kirbister Water Treatment Works (WTW), which receives raw water from the Loch of Kirbister to serve around 7300 properties, was closed on Monday after a burn which runs into the loch was polluted.
Scottish Water shut the plant, which serves the east mainland of Orkney, as a precautionary measure as work was carried out to fix the problem.
While clean-up efforts were ongoing, drinking water was supplied from storage capacity within the Orkney network.
Kes Juskowiak, Scottish Water’s water operations general manager, said: “Our teams have been working since the first reports to contain and clean up the pollution affecting the Loch of Kirbister.
“We have continued to supply safe drinking water to customers from storage tanks within the network and are pleased to have now returned the water treatment works to normal operation.”
