Burncrooks Water Improvements

Burncrooks Reservoir


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 four key components of the project: 

•  Pumping station at Bankell Service Reservoir
•  Transfer main from Bankell Service Reservoir to Baljaffray Service Reservoir
•  Pumping station near Craigton 
•  Rising main from Baljaffray Service Reservoir to connect to the south of the Carbeth DMA


A planning application for the pumping station at Bankell Service Reservoir has been submitted to East Dunbartonshire Council and can be viewed on the planning application section of their website.

Information event

An information event is being planned on Thursday 28th June at Milngavie Town Hall from 3pm until 7pm. Come along and meet representatives from Scottish Water and our alliance partner, Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA). We will be available to answer any questions that you may have regarding the project.
