What are we doing?
Scottish Water is investing in a multi-million pound project to ensure water quality to thousands of people in parts of East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire and West Stirlingshire areas by changing the source of their water supply from Burncrooks WTW to Milngavie WTW.
What does the project involve?
There are three key components of the project:
- Pumping station at Bankell Service Reservoir
- Transfer main from Bankell Service Reservoir to Baljaffray Service Reservoir
- Rising main from Baljaffray Service Reservoir to connect to the south of the Carbeth DMA
During the first phase of the project, which started in May, Scottish Water and CWA have installed about 2000 metres of two parallel stretches of new water main between Mugdock Road and Strathblane Road in Milngavie, 720 metres of the same along Mugdock Road and 220 metres in Strathblane Road outside of the project site offices at Bankell.
The pipeline sections were welded together in 130 metre-long “strings” which were laid out end-to-end and joined together and then, following excavation, laid into the trench. Meanwhile, preparatory work for the construction of a pumping station at Bankell off of Strathblane Road, Milngavie is progressing.
