Scottish Water are planning to upgrade the Water Treatment Works in Kippford in 2022 and a consultation process has started.  In addition they plan to install temporary treatment works to tackle the rise in population over the summer.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, this process has been delayed.  The latest we have from Scottish Water is:

On Friday, the Scottish Government launched a consultation with key organisations around this year’s bathing season due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Depending on the outcome of this consultation, the need to install the temporary equipment this year may change.

In regards to the permanent works, I do not yet have an update on this as much of the capital investment programme has been paused across Scotland.

As we learn more we will update you
