Loch Ness Water May Be Deployed For Urban Supply

DUMFERMLINE

Loch Ness could be used to supply water to Inverness during drier summers, Scottish Water has revealed. The utilities firm has drawn up plans to develop a pumping station south-west of Dores and build a partially buried water tank at Inverness Water Treatment Works in which to store the water. The move comes amid increasing concerns over man-made climate change, and will also help the system cope with rising demand caused by a booming housing market in the Highland capital.
