The online questionnaire was designed to help understand how the increasing number of visitors to Carron Valley and North Third Reservoirs enjoy and perceive them.

Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) is just one of Scottish Water’s key partners with a strong interest. They manage the land around Carron Valley Reservoir.
Andrew Clark, Regional Visitor Services Manager from Forestry and Land Scotland said: “We are committed to working in partnership with Scottish Water at Carron Valley and are keen to hear what visitors think about the site and priorities for future improvements.”
Carron Valley supplies approximately 135,000 customers and many key business customers within the Forth Valley and surrounding areas. North Third Reservoir is no longer used as a source of drinking water.
