Loch Ness Water Project

Investing in the future of your water supply in Fort Augustus and Glenmoriston

Working with its delivery alliance partner, Efficient Service Delivery (ESD), Scottish Water has developed proposals to replace the two existing water treatment works which currently serve the area with a single new works which would be located in forestry south of Invermoriston. 

The proposals include:

  • Building a new water treatment works in forestry south of Invermoriston, drawing water from Loch Ness

  • Installing a new water main to connect the two communities

  • Building a new storage tank on high ground to the north of Fort Augustus

  • Creating water storage capacity at Scottish Water’s existing site in Invermoriston

The scheme as a whole would provide an improved water supply for both communities, with greater resilience and capacity to support future growth. 

It would also include the renewal of key sections of Scottish Water’s network in Fort Augustus, including a new twin pipe main crossing beneath the Caledonian Canal and the River Oich.

Information event

 An information event will take place at the Lovat Hotel in Fort Augustus on Thursday 15 March from 3pm until 8pm. Residents and businesses with an interest in the plans are warmly invited to drop in and discuss any questions, comments or concerns with members of Scottish Water’s project team.
