The water supply to thousands of Bristol homes has been restored after a burst water main in Willsbridge cut off services for many on Wednesday.
Bristol Water has called the incident "one of the biggest" in its history. 35,000 homes across Keynsham, Hanham and Whitchurch were without water and bowsers were brought in to supply residents with drinking water.
Five schools remain closed in Keynsham on Thursday, not confident enough in their water tank's ability to cope. Bristol Water is advising people to run their taps for a short time as the water may be discoloured, which is normal according to the utility company.
