A Scottish Water spokesperson said: “Scottish Water engineers have successfully isolated a damaged section of trunk main which resulted in disruption to water supplies for around 29,000 customers in and around Parkhead this evening.
“The water network is now recovering and affected customers should see their supply return to normal over the next hour.
“Customers may experience discoloured or cloudy water after their supply returns. If this occurs, they are advised to run their cold kitchen tap at half pressure until the water runs clear.”
