About Sustainable Land Management


Scottish Water’s Sustainable Land Management (SLM) team is working in collaboration with land owners and developers to protect drinking water sources throughout Scotland.

Land use such as farming practices, large and small scale construction and forest activities can affect the quality of the source water. If risks are not properly assessed then the quality of the source water can be impacted which in turn increases the energy and chemical use for water treatment.
If we use this preventative approach, it in turn creates benefits for the customer. Protecting our water sources will provide even greater value for money for our customers. It will also help and maintain a high quality of drinking water as well as help deliver real environmental improvements.
