Loch Thom Reservoir Improvements

We're investing £6.9m at our reservoir in Greenock.

From October 2019 we're investing £6.9m at Loch Thom Reservoir in Greenock.

Loch Thom provides drinking water to around 100,000 people in Greenock, Port Glasgow, Lochwinnoch and the surrounding areas.

Work is estimated to be completed by May 2021.  Once complete the substantial improvements being undertaken will help safeguard the reservoir and allow a greater volume of water to be drawn from it when required.

Contractors George Leslie Ltd have put significant measures in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of workers is at the forefront of the work being done here. 

As well as measures like segregated welfare facilities, social distancing and additional hygiene practices, dedicated COVID-19 monitors in each of the squads working on-site are on hand to offer guidance. 

This site is being used as a blueprint for projects going forward.
