Residents in east Lancashire who were left without water for more than two days are to get compensation from United Utilities.
Properties in Accrington, Oswaldtwistle and Clayton-le-Moors were affected by the burst on Burnley Road, Clayton-le-Moors on 27 September.
Eight schools were forced to close because of the lack of water.
The company said it would pay between £10 and £45 to residents, depending how long they were without water.
Helen Wilson, from United Utilities, said: "We understand how inconvenient it was for people to be without water and that is why we have written to everyone direct with our apologies and this offer of compensation."
