We’re busy investing in our water network!

Please follow the diversions whilst we lay a new pipe

Scar House Reservoir

Update - November 2022

The new pipe has been laid and connected. We’ve just got some minor works to finish.

Our working area has been cleared and will stay fenced off so the ground can recover. We’ll be back in late spring/early summer to remove the fencing and reopen the footpath.

Sorry for any inconvenience our works have caused and thank you for your patience.

What's happening?

From May 2021, you might see us out and about making some important changes to Angram and Scar House reservoirs.

In a nutshell, we’ll be replacing the pipe that brings water from Angram reservoir, around the north shore of Scar House reservoir.

It’s important we look after it, as this very pipe connects to the Nidd aqueduct, that carries water to be treated before running out of the taps in homes right across Yorkshire!

Why do we need to lay a pipe?

The existing pipe has come to the end of its life now, but by replacing it we can carry on using the high quality water from Angram reservoir, to help keep your loo flushing and showers flowing. This also helps if we need to lower the levels of water in Scar House reservoir to get any maintenance work done.

How long will it take?

We’re hoping to remove the fencing and reopen the footpath late spring/early summer 2023.

Why is there a diversion?

To keep you and our contract partner’s safe, we need to close the footpath along the north shore of Scar House reservoir. Don’t worry though, you’re still free to roam around the reservoir as much as you like, we just need to ask that you use the diversion route instead.
