Engineers have restored gas supplies to all accessible homes three days after a ruptured pipe left householders without central heating or hot water.
Around 3,500 homes in the Fishcross, Coalsnaughton, Dollar and Tillicoultry areas of Clackmannanshire were cut off on Tuesday when a farmer accidentally damaged a large pipe while carrying out drainage work in a field.
Scotland Gas Networks (SGN) has confirmed supplies have been restored as far as possible at this stage.
A statement on the firm's website said: "Gas is available to all properties in Dollar, Coalsnaughton and Tillicoultry.
"We have reconnected all homes where we have been able to gain access.
"Where engineers have called to restore individual supplies and have, after several visits, been unable to gain access, they will leave a postcard asking our customer to notify us on their return home by calling our 24-hour customer helpline on 0845 070 1432.
"We will then arrange another visit by an engineer to reconnect their supply as quickly as possible.
"We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding at this time."
SGN previously said engineers secured the leak by Wednesday morning but staff had to visit all affected properties in the area to ensure gas supplies were turned off before services could be restored.
All affected customers have received a letter informing them that they will receive £30 compensation for every day without gas after the first 24 hours. Fishcross and Clackmannan primary schools were closed on Tuesday as a precaution and Dollar Academy did not open on Wednesday.
