Thursday 10 June 2010


I've receieved a notification from Scottish Water regarding works they'll be carrying out from this week. Residents should have recieved a letter, but if not, it reads as follows:

Scottish Water, in support of the Glasgow City Council East End Regeneration Route initiative, will begin water main and sewer diversions from 14th June 2010 for approximately 18 weeks. George Leslie will be carrying out this work on our behalf.

When carrying out water mains diversions there may be some disruption to your water supply, however we will give you at least 48 hours advance notification. During the works you may experience low pressure and discoloured water. Please do not use any water for washing clothes during this period. Instead, you should turn on your cold tap in the kitchen until the water runs clear.

During our sewer improvements there may be some low-level noise from our specialised equipment. It is possible that this will have to work into the night. All equipment used is silenced and falls within acceptable levels.

There will be some local disruption to traffic movements during our works. This may include temporary traffic lights or narrowing lanes. We will make every effort to minimise the impact of this disruption.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this essential work may cause. If you have any questions about Scottish Water or the project, please contact our Customer Helpline on 0845 601 8855 quoting “East End Regeneration Route” and the reference at the top of this page”.

Yours faithfully

Caroline Taylor

Project Communications Adviser
