Bottled water has been delivered to 2,000 homes in Easter Ross left without water after a supply breakdown.
Efforts are being made to restore supplies as soon as possible
A technical fault at Newmore water treatment works meant water was not pumped to the Lamington Tank - which serves 10,000 properties - on Monday.
Scottish Water teams have been working to restore supplies to Milton, Kildary, Hill of Fearn, Arabella, Ballintore and surrounding areas.
It apologised to customers and said no properties were now without water.
A spokesman said it was expected that the tanks would have filled up and everything would be back to normal by Tuesday morning.
