The application for a drought order for the Black Esk reservoir has been withdrawn and Scottish Water has confirmed that supplies to Annandale and Eskdale are back to normal. In Wigtownshire, levels are improving but not fully recovered and the drought order application for the Penwhirn reservoir has been suspended.
But Central Ayrshire MP Brian Donohoe said: "I'm fed up of going back to this subject on an annual basis. The water companies need to do more to invest in stopping the leaks and the waste."
Scottish Water customer service delivery director Peter Farrer responded: "We will maintain ongoing leakage work to ensure that any burst pipes are repaired quickly."
- Despite the recent rainfall, United Utilities has said a hosepipe ban will continue in the North West until all reservoirs in the area have fully recovered.
