SCOTTISH Water urged the householders in North Lanarkshire not to wash, cook with or drink the water after worked they through the night to assess the danger.

RESIDENTS in more than 6,000 Scots homes have been warned their tap water is so contaminated it’s unfit to even be boiled.

Scottish Water urged the householders in North Lanarkshire not to wash, cook with or drink the water after worked through the night to assess the danger.

Homes and businesses in the affected areas of Carfin, Newarthill, Chapelhall, New Stevenston and Dalziel Park had reported smelly, discoloured tap water yesterday.

Supplies of bottled water were delivered to affected areas last night and this morning.

A spokesman for Scottish Water said: “After receiving contacts from customers about the taste and smell of tap water, we investigated thoroughly and examined our network.

“We have advised customers in Carfin, Newarthill, Chapelhall, New Stevenston and Dalziel Park not to use their water for any purpose – other than flushing toilets – as a precautionary measure.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.

“We have had teams out in the affected areas all night assisting customers and are investigating the issue as a matter of priority.”

North Lanarkshire Council said the water problems had also forced the closure of all schools in Carfin, Newarthill, Chapelhall, New Stevenston and Dalziel Park.

Scottish Water said initial investigations suggested an “oilly substance” had polluted the water.
