Readers in Lanarkshire may have noticed that their tap water is a strange color today.
According to Scottish Water, this is due to the natural level of manganese in the water supply.
The problem is exacerbated by record low reservoir levels due to lack of rainfall.
Scottish Water has confirmed that it has never had a problem with Dior and Campus water treatment, which purifies tap water before it is distributed to homes.
Members of the public can use tap water as usual, and Scottish Water has assured residents that they are safe. Drink it.
The organization is also introducing additional treatment methods to help reduce the color problem.
Scottish Water said: “Please reassure us that we are doing everything possible to bring things back to normal for affected customers. We thank you for your patience and understanding.”
