Locals have been advised to stay away from the water.

People were warned to avoid bathing in the water at Monifieth after a sewer pipe burst on Thursday.

The pipe burst at Tayview Caravan Park, which overlooks the Tay estuary.

Signs were advising locals to stay away from the water until the issue had been fixed.

But Scottish Water has confirmed the issue has now been resolved.

Work to fix burst sewer pipe

A Scottish Water spokesperson said: “The repair to fix a burst main sewer pipe at Tayview Caravan Park in Monifeith was completed at around 5:30pm on Thursday.

“To allow this work to be carried out, we required to temporarily discharge screened sewage effluent to the long sea outfall at Monifieth.

“Everything is now running back to normal.

“We’d like to apologise and thank locals for their patience while our team carried out repairs.”
