Water Cleared For Use
Households affected by a problem with their water supply have been told they can start using their tap water again.
Thousands of homes and businesses in North Lanarkshire were advised not to cook, drink or wash with their water following concerns over its taste and smell.
Early investigations suggested an oily substance was in the network.
Scottish Water said it had informed customers in Carfin, Newarthill, New Stevenston, Dalziel Park and Chapelhall that the water is now safe to drink and use as normal.
Chief operating officer Peter Farrer said: "We had managed to lift restrictions to the vast majority of customers last night and we are now in the process of leafleting the remaining properties to advise that the water can be used again as normal.
"We have had a significant team working on this issue and many staff have been working hard to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.
"We have also worked to provide customers with alternative supplies and provide information to those affected.
"I would like to apologise to customers who have been inconvenienced and we thank all customers for understanding and patience.''
The company said it will continue to monitor the area's water network.
Initially, about 6,000 customers were advised to use their water only for flushing toilets and a total of 600,000 litres of bottled water was distributed to properties.
North Lanarkshire Council announced yesterday that nine schools would remain closed today as a precaution. Their water systems are being flushed through and the schools will reopen on Monday.
The schools are Taylor High School, St Theresa's Primary, Brannock High School, Keir Hardie Memorial Primary, Our Lady & St Frances Primary, New Stevenston Primary, St Patrick's Primary, Chapelhall Primary and St Aloysius Primary.
