Project Overview 

Scottish Water is preparing a £2.3m investment to take care of Dalwhinnie’s water supply. The proposals will ensure we can continue to provide customers in the village with clean, fresh drinking water for years to come, as well as providing capacity to meet high seasonal demand from tourism. 

The proposed Water Treatment Works (WTW) will replace the existing Works with a plant which has the capacity to produce up to 200,000 litres of drinking water a day.  In addition, Scottish Water proposes to install a new storage tank to provide up to 24 hours of drinking water storage capacity.

Latest News 

A Planning Application was submitted to the Highland Council in early November 2018 and can be accessed via the Highland Council planning website.  

Site investigation trial pits have commenced on the extended Water Treatment Works site and are continuing at the replacement borehole site, Clear Water Tank site and along proposed pipeline routes.  

Depending on the outcome of the planning application, it is anticipated that contract awards for the early phases of work may take place in early 2019.  

Engaging the Local Community 

A drop-in information event took place in August 2018 at Dalwhinnie Village Hall to enable residents to view the proposals and speak to the project team. The information that was on display at the event is in the supporting documents section below.  Feedback from the event has been taken into consideration in developing planting proposals for the new Water Treatment Works site.
