Residents in parts of Inverclyde have been left without water for almost two days after a water main burst.
A number of properties in Wemyss Bay, Skelmorlie and Inverkip lost their normal water supply early on Saturday morning.
Scottish Water said a burst nine inch water main in Wemyss Bay on the A78 was the cause of the issue.
In addition to the burst pipe, additional bursts were reported near the location, leading to some residents experiencing low water pressure or discoloured water.
Repairs took place overnight and by midday on Sunday, Scottish Water said normal water supplies were being restored to residents.
However the company warned it could be some time before supplies were back to normal.
A statement on the Scottish Water website said: “The recharging of the network is being done slowly and gently in order to avoid any further issues so the restoration of normal supplies to some affected customers may take a little longer.”
Scottish Water has set up bottled water collection points at the Inverkip War Memorial and Skelmorlie Community Centre.
The company added that road users will continue to be affected by the issue, as workers restore the road surface following the pipe repair.
“Road traffic management remains in place as we work to restore the road surface following the repair on the A78 in Wemyss Bay,” the statement continued.
“A short section of the A78 near Forbes Place has been reduced from two lanes to one with single-file traffic and temporary traffic lights in operation to enable our work to be carried out safely.
“This will cause some inconvenience to road users in the area and we apologise for this and thank them for their patience and understanding.”
