£880,000 investment

The project will see 4.4km of mains pipework rehabilitated.

What We Are Doing

The water mains rehab work will involve the replacement of 4.4km of water mains pipework, with new plastic water mains pipe along the same route. 

This will involve both excavation work to replace pipe work and also a technique called slip-lining where the existing pipe is used as a sleeve into which the new pipe is inserted


Update - June 2022 

 The A923 Forfar to Arbroath road was re-opened on the Friday 10th June and these works are now complete.  
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation during these essential works that will benefit the whole community with fresh, clear drinking water.
