Major new works bringing a fresh new water supply to Cowdenbeath have just been completed, with Scottish Water marking a significant investment to improve security of water supply to 11,000 customers in the town.
The £250,000 project to replace the ageing water mains infrastructure in the High Street was completed, as water mains with a recent history of bursts were replaced by durable new plastic pipes, improving not only reliability, but also delivering the benefits of clearer, fresher drinking water.
Scottish Water’s Regional Community Manager for Fife, Anne Marie Dewar was brought up in Cowdenbeath, and still lives in the town. She is delighted the investment project has been completed: “This is an important project which will help to deliver not only a supply of clearer, fresher drinking water to customers in Cowdenbeath, but also ensure that the supply is more robust, addressing a recent history of bursts.
"We have replaced the ageing cast iron water main running along the High Street with a new durable, plastic pipe, better suited to the rigours of modern usage and traffic conditions.”
