**** BURST SEWAGE PIPE ****
There is a burst sewage pipe on the way in to the village, opposite the old telephone exchange. This has been reported to both Scottish Water (SW) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). SW are attending as a matter of extreme urgency but the repair will involve Scottish Power because the burst is adjacent to an electricity pole.
A generator and pump have been installed by Scottish Water to bypass the burst pipe. This may be in place for several weeks until Scottish Power arrange to isolate the power lines above the damaged pipe.
