#Scottish Water

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

 

Following a consultation with representatives of Kippford, Scottish Water have decided to withdraw their initial planning application for temporary water treatment works on the existing site.  They will return with a revised plan in the future.

 

Minutes of Meeting

Subject:           Scottish Water Waste Treatment Plant – Consultation

Scottish Water are currently undertaking a consultation with the village on the upgrade of the Waste Water Treatment Works in the Village.  The proposed works would be in 2021/22.

There is a need for a temporary solution to water treatment and SW have therefore submitted a planning application to Dumfries & Galloway Council.

Below are some Questions and Answers recently received from Scottish Water in Relation to the proposed new waste treatment plant in Kippford.  

Scottish Water have asked us to note that : "we are still in the very early stages of design so we do not have all of the answers just yet."
