Improving Services In Ayrshire

The investment project in Ayrshire is complete, many thanks to the local community for their help and support. Take a look back at the project here

Aberdeen Investment

What we’re doing

We’re carrying out on a major £5.3 million initiative to improve drinking water quality for around 20,000 homes in Aberdeen. The project involves upgrading around 100 miles of water pipes across the southside of Aberdeen and outlying areas.

What it involves

We’re relining and cleaning pipes to improve the quality of water flowing through pipes to customers' taps. It’s a cost efficient method of refurbishing pipes which still have a long life in them.
Some of the work will involve excavations to access water mains and some local traffic management will be put in place as required. We will do all we can to keep this to a minimum with local access being maintained where possible.
In the event of any localised disruption while the work takes place, Scottish Water will write to customers in advance. 

Where we're working

The first part of the project, in the Torry area, has been completed. In September 2013 we’re starting work in the Norfolk Road and Queen’s Cross areas. When complete work will start in a number of other areas including Mannofield, Culter, Berryden, Rosemount, Whitehall, Cove North, Findon, Portlethen, Newtonhill and Muchalls.

Glasgow Investment

Scottish Water is undertaking a £250 million investment programme to improve services, protect the natural environment and provide clearer, fresher drinking water throughout Glasgow.

Clatto Water Treatment Works

While the Clattoe Water Treatment Works remains an integral part of our water supply network to the City of Dundee, the depot and adjoining land is now surplus to our operational requirements.


Dalmuir Waste Water Treatment Works

Further improvements at Dalmuir Waste Water Treatment Works, Clydebank

Scottish Water in November 2013 started work on substantial improvements at the Dalmuir Waste Water Treatment Works (WWTW) in Clydebank.The £20m project, which received planning permission from West Dunbartonshire Council,  will enhance the operability and all round performance of the WwTW and reducing the potential for odour.

Scottish Water and Saur Services Glasgow Ltd (SSG), which operates the WWTW on behalf of Scottish Water, introduced a new treatment process there in 2010. This new process, called centrifuging, has been running successfully  using a temporary facility.

Centrifuges are like large spin-dryers which dry off water from liquid sludge to produce a sludge cake and ensure that the sludge is in a suitable state to go to land reclamation.

The temporary centrifuge system at Dalmuir WWTW has improved the sludge management process and we would now like to make this permanent. To do this, we need to erect a new building at the WWTW to fully enclose the equipment.

The investment  which we estimate will take about two years to complete, also includes a process which will improve the quality of waste water we discharge from the WWTW under licence from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency(SEPA) into the River Clyde.

It will involve the construction of housing for the system and a de-odourising unit along with other operational facilities.

Scottish Water is advising residents in the Dalmuir area of a possible temporary increase in traffic and noise levels at Dalmuir WWTW during our improvement work

As part of the project, piling work is due to begin around January 20, depending on weather conditions, and continue until the end of February.

During this work there might be an increase in traffic to and from the WWTW and noise levels. However, we will make every effort to minimise this, and the work is being carried out at a location on the site which is as far away from adjacent properties as is possible.

Scottish Water would like to thank customers in the area for their patience and understanding while we carry out this important work.




The award winning Glencorse Water treatments works will soon be serving the whole of Edinburgh. Find out about it here.
