What we are doing
We are taking care of the water services in this community by upgrading the water pipes to ensure customers continue to enjoy clear, fresh drinking water, and reduce the chance of pipes bursting.
When are we doing it
Work to replace the water main will start on the 23rd of May 2022. The work will involve a rolling programme, commencing at Monikie Church to Panmure cottages, moving towards Camustane Hill. The next section of works will be located near Inverarity and finishing at Whigstreet. The programme of work is expected to be complete within approx. 22 weeks.
What happens next
We may need to turn off the water supply. If we do, we will send customers further information at least 48 hours in advance, detailing the dates and times that your supply will be affected and what to do. During the works local residents may experience a change in water pressure and/or discoloured water. If this happens don’t be alarmed, turn on the cold water tap in your kitchen, let the water flow slowly until it runs clear.
There will be some roadworks, with local diversions in place, the use of temporary traffic lights and speed restrictions (see details below).
Local access will be maintained wherever possible and access for emergency vehicles will always be maintained. Pedestrian access will not be affected.
