Good afternoon all,
Comrie and Dalginross Flood Protection Scheme – Ground Investigation and Drainage/Manholes Surveys
I am writing to provide you with a brief update on the above.
The ground investigations works for the Comrie and Dalginross Flood Study are now complete. The information received from the boreholes and the laboratory testing (which is on-going) will inform us on the design of any future defences. The local residents were very patient with regards to the closure of the Field of Refuge Car Park to facilitate these works – as well as understanding on the localised noise and minor disturbances that may have been caused. The selected boreholes which have stand pipes fitted will be continue to be monitored for ground water information for the next couple of months.
As part of our on-going work for the Comrie and Dalginross Flood Study we are now planning to undertake drainage and manholes surveys in Comrie in the coming weeks. This work will commence tomorrow. The works will require a mobile camera unit to be used to survey the underground pipe networks. Where works take place there will likely be some minor traffic management required to allow safe access for our contractors crews – however disruption to travel not anticipated. Access to each manhole should in most cases only require approximately 30 minutes.
The data captured by the survey work will allow us to ensure that any proposed defences do not impact adversely on any existing drainage or sewer infrastructure and ensure that the optimal design solution for the Comrie and Dalginross Flood Protection Scheme is found.
Should you have any questions or require more information in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact me at the details provided below.
