An evening webinar hosted by the CIWEM Scottish branch presenting the Ayrshire Strategic Resilience project case study which demonstrates how .. Read more resilience can be built into aging infrastructure. This is part of the CIWEM Flood Resilience digital series. One of the first projects identified was one that, when completed will benefit around 47,000 domestic customers and two major industrial customers in Ayrshire. A loss of supply from the Bradan water treatment works at critical sections will result in a supply shortfall of 47Ml/d. The Ayrshire Strategic Resilience Project will provide resilience to the Bradan Zone supplying water treated in Milngavie, North of Glasgow via a system of 60km new trunk mains, three pumping stations and nine 1500mm micro-tunnels. Mike Dunlop will describe the development of the project from the single objective, 'To provide resilience to Ayrshire', to the current project that will result in the decommissioning of four aging water treatment works and provide resilience to communities in a path from Thornliebank in South West Glasgow to Kilmarnock. This talk will provide a strong case study in building resilience into aging infrastructure and will be of interest to anyone working in the water sector as the industry rises to meet these challenges now and in the future.
