Water Pipe Upgrades at Madderty and St David's, Perth

Project status prepare

Project Overview

We are taking care of the water services in your community by upgrading the water pipes in and around the Madderty & St David’s area to ensure you continue to enjoy clear, fresh drinking water, and reduce the chance of pipes bursting. We will be installing approximately 20km of new water main from north of the A85 down towards Kirkton.

When are we doing it?

Work is planned to start from approximately 27th November 2023 with work progressing on a rolling programme. The entire programme is expected to take approximately 16 months. 

What happens next?

The works will involve excavations at strategic locations along the pipe route and some open cut replacement.

There will be various work in the roads/road verges along the route which will involve various traffic management including temporary traffic lights and road closures (with local diversions) to ensure the safety of both our workforce and members of the public. All planned road closures will be sign posted in advance and we ask customers to follow our signage at all times.

You can view our letter below which was issued to all customers in the area, this provides more information on the work locations and details of the road closure. However, please be aware that these dates and durations may be subject to change depending on progress of the work.


Community Engagement: Water Cycle Talks at Madderty Primary School

As part of our ongoing commitment to engage with the local community as the project in Madderty progresses, our contractors, Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA), recently visited Madderty Primary School to deliver Water Cycle educational talks to the entire school.

The team delivered two informative sessions, reaching approximately 70 enthusiastic students. Each student received a Scottish Water water bottle as a token of our appreciation for their participation and eagerness to learn.

The students were absolutely brilliant—polite, highly engaged, and full of insightful questions about the water cycle. Their curiosity and enthusiasm made the event incredibly rewarding for everyone involved.

Those from CWA had a fantastic time interacting with the students and sharing knowledge about the essential role of water in our environment. We look forward to continuing our efforts to engage and educate our community on important topics like this.

Thank you, Madderty Primary School, for welcoming the team and showing such an interest!
