We’re busy investing in our water network!

Please follow the diversions whilst we lay a new pipe

Scar House Reservoir

What is this work?

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 be done and dusted by late Autumn 2021.

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.
