NI Water would condemn the vandalism which took place in Coalisland overnight which resulted in 5000 gallons of water released from a water bowser.
NI Water has some 500 staff on the ground dealing with supply issues and also checking for leakage in private and commercial premises which remains a major cause of concern.
NI Water would re-iterate its appeal to customers to check their premises for any damage to pipes and repair these as soon as possible.
