As a result of flooding within the Almondbank area, from the River Almond and the East Pow Burn, a flood protection scheme is to be built to alleviate the problem.
The Scheme consists of set back and in-channel flood defences along the River Almond and the Pow Burn. The defences comprise of approximately 1,150 linear metres of sheet piled flood walls, 1,600m reinforced concrete flood walls, 750m of earth embankments and over 2,000m of erosion protection measures. The Scheme also includes replacing and raising 2 vehicle access bridges along the Pow Burn and raising and moving an existing pedestrian access bridge on the River Almond. A temporary flood water storage reservoir will be created on the existing playing field in the centre of the village. A community sports pavilion will also be built in the vicinity. The impact of the Scheme on surface water flooding has been addressed with additional drainage measures, modifications to existing highway drainage systems and the provision of water pumping stations. In addition a number of related construction works are required, including site clearance and utility diversions.
Visitors will receive an introductory presentation to the project and a site tour to view the works being carried out on the flood defense construction.
Almondbank is situated to the west of Perth, just off the A85 Crieff Road.
