Overnight pumping has removed 20 feet of water from the reservoir
A reservoir in Renfrewshire which had been affected by heavy weekend rain is no longer in danger of bursting.
Police said the water level at the dam, near Lochwinnoch, had dropped by about 20 feet since a controlled pumping operation started on Monday afternoon.
Fire crews on the scene are continuing to release water into the adjacent Maich Burn.
It is not yet known when residents evacuated from several nearby farms will be allowed to return home.
On Monday, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency said there was a risk of the sudden release of water stored behind the dam.
The A760 Lochwinnoch to Kilbirnie road was closed as a precaution and drivers and pedestrians were warned to stay away from the area.
