West Lothian Water Mains Upgrade

Scottish Water is upgrading the water supply in West Lothian.  This £3.6 million investment will improve the water quality and reduce the risk of pipes bursting.

The project involves the rehabilitation of about 46 kilometers of water mains pipe in Armadale, Blackburn and Broxburn. Work began in Armadale in 2016 and has recently begun in Blackburn.

The work in Blackburn is expected to be completed by the end of August.

Pipe refurbishment work includes replacement, re-lining the internal surface of the mains or cleaning them by swabbing and flushing. This improves the water quality from the existing water mains pipes by cleaning any deposits that have built up over time.

We are currently working in the following streets:

  • Hopefeild Road
  • Hopefield Drive
  • Hopefield Place
  • Whitehill Drive
  • Whitehill View
  • Yule Place
  • Yule Terrace
  • Riddochhill Road
  • Ladeside Road


We will be updating this page as work progresses.

Our alliance partner, Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA) who are carrying out the work on our behalf, visited local school Blackburn Primary to give a presentation explaining about where their water came from and teaching the children how to be safe when there is construction going on around them.
