North-east homes were left without water and part of a street flooded after a pipe burst.
According to Scottish Water, the issue was affecting properties in the Westwood Drive area of Westhill.
Part of the road was flooded, with the supplier made aware of the issue at around 10pm yesterday.
The repair is still under way this morning but water has been restored to many of the properties.
A Scottish Water spokeswoman said: “Scottish Water operatives arrived on site at around 11pm last night, isolated the burst and arranged for alternative supplies to be brought into the network to bring customers back into supply.
“A repair is now under way. We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of this burst and thank customers for their patience and understanding.”
