"CONSERVE WATER" APPEAL

THERE IS only enough water in Stranraer's reservoirs to last for another six weeks. Knockquhassen and Dindinnie are at a very low level.

And Scottish Water are appealing to people to conserve water "to help us manage our resources during this period".

Normally, reservoirs are at their lowest in October but this year the situation has been made worse by a long period with little rain. Geoff Aitkenhead, Asset Management Director for Scottish Water, said:

"Reservoirs throughout Dumfries and Galloway are lower than normal this year due to the long dry spell so we are asking customers in Annandale, Eskdale, Stewartry and Stranraer to help us manage our supplies by using water wisely".

Scottish Water are now monitoring the supply system on a daily basis and have put in place contingency plans to cope with "virtually any situation" to use their own words.
