Major investment to tackle flooding in Dunblane, Scotland making progress

Scottish Water’s £3 million investment project to deliver essential improvements to the waste water infrastructure in Dunblane, Perthshire is well under way. These major works involve the replacement of and upgrades to the existing sewer network to increase capacity and help reduce the risk of internal and external sewer flooding.

They’re carrying out this improvement work to help tackle the historical issue of flooding in the area. A new combined sewer tie-in chamber has now been constructed at Dunblane Air Cadets’ premises.

Approximately 115 metres of waste water pipes has been laid. In addition, around 256 metres of new surface water pipes have been constructed. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by the end of July 2022.

Georgina Reid, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs manager for the west, said: “We fully appreciate that works of this nature can cause some inconvenience for people but it is absolutely vital that this improvement work is carried out to help tackle the historical issue of flooding in the area.

“We have listened to concerns and actively engaged with the local community council to address any issues, and we would like to thank them for their input to help minimise any disruption where possible. Once again, we’d like to thank road users and local residents for their patience and understanding throughout.”
