As part of our statutory obligations as reservoir owners, works are being undertaken to safeguard the integrity of the reservoir and manage risk to the wider public and downstream. The project will be to repair weathered stone blocks and replace missing stone on the downstream face of the main dam spillway. The planned repairs to the spillway are to protect this masonry structure from potential scour damage in times of flood, or whenever water flows over the weir.
Update October 2018
Weir repairs have been partially completed by the Scottish Canals Maintenance team.
