Newfield, Peterhead Water Mains Replacement

Scottish Water is currently carrying out essential water mains upgrade works to the South West of Peterhead to continue to provide clear, fresh drinking water into the future.

The work, which will help to increase capacity to support growth in the local area, involves the replacement of approximately 1.5km of existing water main with a new larger 400mm diameter pipe.

This work which is currently on site, may require some interruption to the water supply.  All customers affected by any planned interruption to supply relating to this project will be notified in advance of any planned shut.

Our contractor Amey is carrying out this work on our behalf.  

Good progress is being made and completion is expected in Spring this year.

Customers advised of planned interruption to water supply

As part of these ongoing works we require to carry out a planned interruption to the water supply.

Approximately 400 customers in communities between Ellon and Peterhead have been notified of a planned interruption to their water supply to allow these essential works to progress.

The work will take place overnight between 10pm on Thursday 27 February and 6am on Friday 28 February, and may cause interruption to supply between those times for some customers in the Longhaven, Cruden Bay, Hatton, Collieston, Whinnyfold and Auchenleuchries areas.

All customers who may be affected by any planned interruption to supply relating to this project have been notified in advance.

We would like to thank customers for their patience while we carry out this essential work and apologise for any inconvenience it causes.

We have scheduled the work to take place overnight to minimise disruption to customers and will also be tankering water to keep the number of properties experiencing any interruption to supply to a minimum.
