Work to assess the local water network is set to take place in the Peterhead area.

Scottish Water will be carrying out investigations to understand what future maintenance or investment might be required in water pipes in and around the town.

This will enable Scottish Water to ensure it continues to provide a high level of service and clear, fresh drinking water for customers in the Peterhead area well into the future.

The work involves some digging down to water mains to survey and test pipes.

While no interruptions to customer water supplies are planned, Scottish Water will be writing to customers in the vicinity to advise of work.

A Scottish Water spokesman said: “Scottish Water is planning for the future. And to ensure we continue to deliver the best services well into the future, it’s important we take steps to understand what kind of maintenance or investment might be required to ensure the best performance of our water pipes. That’s why we are carrying out this investigation work in the Peterhead area, to help provide the best water service for our customers in the town.

“We are grateful to customers for their patience while this essential investigatory work is carried out.”

Once the necessary excavations have been made, a surveyor will attend to carry out the investigations. All excavations will be securely fenced. Once complete, the excavation will be filled and the area affected reinstated. The work, which is being carried out by contractor Morrison Construction, begins on July 22 for around five weeks.
