Upgrades to Crianlarich’s water system have been completed. The works took place following calls from Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford to Scottish Water, after the mains in the village burst four times within four months – leaving many without water for periods of time.
In an email to Mr Crawford, Scottish Water said:
I can confirm that Scottish Water has completed an upgrade to its water mains network in Crianlarich improving its service to customers in the area. This work included an invested of around £120K to improve a section of water main to provide customers with additional resilience and security of supply.
Work began on Monday 7 January 2019 and involved contractors Clancy Docwra installing 222 metres of new pipework along Station Road from its junction with Main Street.
As you will be aware customers in the area have experienced interruption to their supply on several occasions and these upgrades to our infrastructure will help reduce further risk of disruption. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding while these works were under way.
Mr Crawford commented:
“I am pleased that this work has now been completed, and hope that this brings a lasting resolve to the issues facing local residents and businesses.
“Losing water supply is highly disruptive to people’s lives, which is why I approached this matter with urgency. I am pleased that Scottish Water have listened and acted.”
