Drone policy

Due to the potential risks to our assets, employees or the public the flying of drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for personal use from, or over, Scottish Water assets e.g. reservoirs, treatment works,  is not permitted for personal or commercial use.

Where these activities are proposed by or on behalf of Scottish Water, a risk assessment will generally be required involving the operations manager for the site, and Scottish Water’s health and safety, security and insurance teams.

Applications for any commercial filming on Scottish Water’s land and property should be made to Scottish Water Horizons Limited www.scottishwater.co.uk/business/horizons

Guidance on the legal position is available at www.caa.co.uk/uas.
