Protecting the natural environment in Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock Storm Transfer Project

We're investing in the Kilmarnock area to help improve the natural environment. This work will help protect the local coastal waters and rivers.

Work is underway on the installation of a new storm water network which should be completed in late 2013.

The existing storm water network will be upgraded and a new storm water storage tank will be built.

Work within Irvine is alreardy well under way.


We are working with Morrison and Black & Veatch (MBV) to carry out this essential work.

Start date

Started on site at Gatehead and Drybridge in December 2010, work within Kilmarnock will shortly be announced.

End date

Estimated late 2013

Keeping you in the picture

We have already held an information evening where we provided details of our plans. We aim to keep local councillors, community councils, residents and businesses informed as this project progresses.

How this work will affect you

Whenever we are doing work in your area we will always ensure that any disruption to your daily lives are kept to a minimum. There should be no interruption to your water or waste water services during the installation of the network.

We may need to use temporary traffic lights or close roads and put diversions in place. This is agreed with the local Highways Authority and the Police and we work with them to try to ensure minimum disruption. At times we may also need to provide alternative footpaths and temporarily move bus stops while the work is being done. There will always be signs in place to let you know of any diversions and traffic management.
