Eathie Mains Rehab
We are investing £3m to upgrade the water network serving customers in and around the Eathie/Davidston/Peddieston area. The project, which is expected to be complete by late 2023, will see almost 10.5km of existing water mains replaced.

Mains Rehab project in and around Eathie
Why We Are Doing This
This project will ensure we can continue to provide customers in the area with fresh, clear great tasting water for years to come, as well as providing a more reliable service and reducing the chance of burst on the network.
What We are Doing
The first phase of this work will begin on Monday 9th January on the Eathie Road at Craighead and will head towards Eathie Mains Farm and will last approximately 10wks. This phase of work will require a road closure between Craighead and Eathie Mains Farm.
Following on from the Eathie Road we will move to the A823 to carry out a further upgrade on the water network. This will involve work on the main road and on private land.
To allow work to be completed safety, traffic management measures will be in place, including the use of temporary traffic lights and speed restriction. These will be well signposted in advance.
The project may also involve some short, planned interruptions to water supplies in the area as new sections of water main are brought into service, but efforts will be made to keep this to a minimum. Residents and businesses will be notified at least 48 hours in advance of any planned interruption affecting their supply.
The project is being delivered on Scottish Water’s behalf by alliance partner Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA) and local contractor Pat Munro.
We appreciate that the need for a road closure and traffic management measures and the potential for planned interruptions to water supplies as work progresses may cause some inconvenience but our team on site will do all they can to keep this to a minimum.
Our thanks to those affected for their patience and understanding while the project is underway.
