Aberdeen Investment

What we’re doing

We’re carrying out on a major £5.3 million initiative to improve drinking water quality for around 20,000 homes in Aberdeen. The project involves upgrading around 100 miles of water pipes across the southside of Aberdeen and outlying areas.

What it involves

We’re relining and cleaning pipes to improve the quality of water flowing through pipes to customers' taps. It’s a cost efficient method of refurbishing pipes which still have a long life in them.
Some of the work will involve excavations to access water mains and some local traffic management will be put in place as required. We will do all we can to keep this to a minimum with local access being maintained where possible.
In the event of any localised disruption while the work takes place, Scottish Water will write to customers in advance. 

Where we're working

The first part of the project, in the Torry area, has been completed. In September 2013 we’re starting work in the Norfolk Road and Queen’s Cross areas. When complete work will start in a number of other areas including Mannofield, Culter, Berryden, Rosemount, Whitehall, Cove North, Findon, Portlethen, Newtonhill and Muchalls.
